Beach Huts, Southend
|Location||East Beach, Southend on sea|
|Client||Southend on sea Borough Council|
This is a competition scheme for 12 beach huts. The ‘rooms’ have clearly defined spaces and uses, and are useable all year round; opening up on hot summer days, or creating shelter on blustery wet days. Solid timber panel construction provides the interior with an exposed natural wood finish. The ornate metal screen was to be designed by a local artist and depict local scenes.
