As the UK’s first beach huts designed specifically for people with disabilities, this project represents a creative response to a demanding brief.
Considered organisation of space allows much flexibility. The ‘Seagull’, the wing form of the roof, is a simple, distinctive device unifying the four huts. The ‘Windbreak’, the billowing coloured banding, enforces this identity providing visual messaging for the partially sighted.
This is an exciting modest project, where both user and client see its impact acting as a catalyst for wider design improvements along the seafront.
