Traditionally round, the hut is built of plant materials: wood and straw or, as on Ouvéa, wood and coconut palm fronds. This Kanak house is the place where a family and others from the same clan sleep. Children usually rest at the back of this dwelling.

Inside, a hearth is placed near the hut entrance. It provides heat on some nights, even though the advantage of the hut is that it keeps heat in during the cool season and minimises it in summer. The traditional construction has another advantage: it gives the wind almost no hold during cyclones.
