When Canterbury was busy putting things back up, patching up and looking for some simple and relatively swift housing solutions post-earthquake Barrington and Walker felt very strongly that this shouldn't also mean they should be devoid of style.

Enter stage left –Black Hut.

Black cedar, endlessly adaptable for a home, office, retail or hospitality and with a positively indecent amount of style and eco-friendly to the nth degree.

Christchurch loved it, the owners loved it, New Zealand House & Garden gave it a centrefold and the culture of Black Hut was born.
