Beach Nut
Bathing Beauties Competition - Commended Entry

   

Why a Beach Hut?

The Beach Hut - a non-residential micro building on the English littoral.

   

The Bathing Beauties project aims to reinvigorate the traditional English seaside experience with bold and dramatic architecture. It aims at creating a series of beach huts on a partly forgotten stretch of the Lincolnshire coast.

   

The beach hut is one of the few building forms which has been seriously overlooked by contemporary architecture, they are perceived as a treasured feature of our coastal landscape, as quintessentially British as fish and chips and the knotted hanky, but in reality usually little more than a painted shed.
