te modular

We developed TeModular during the height of the GFC, when we had a number of people approach us for a bach design within a small budget.
Our response was to explore 2 main avenues, firstly the idea of a repeatable set of drawings, to spread the cost of our service over a number of builds, secondly to control size while still providing what we consider to be the essentials for a magical holiday shelter.

The intention of Te Modular was not to develop a kitset or “flatpack” building that could prefabricated, but to develop a design for a bach that distilled all of our thinking into a small bach model that could be repeated on most sites, with only minor modifications to the foundations. The construction of which would be done in the traditional way by a builder local to the area.

The first TeModular was built on Great Barrier Island in 2013, the second in 2015 on the same beach.
