Transformable, mobile architecture.
Camping at Te Pūtahi, the Trust Tairāwhiti Festival Hub, over the course of the festival - meet the Caravannex, an experimental caravan designed to be useful 12 months of the year. It can take you on holiday up the coast or stay at home as an annex to your house – caravan+annex.
Designed by Katy Wallace after winning the CNZ Craft/Object Fellowship in 2017 and built by Katy and her partner Paulus McKinnon, Caravannex was inspired by Gisborne’s camping culture.
At home it can park up and connect to your house with platforms and awnings to create an extra room. The folding interior can transform into many different things, then it can drive off into the landscape; off the grid and self-contained.
Come and visit it regularly over the course of the festival, day and night, to see how Caravannex transforms.
