East Beach Café in Littlehampton, UK by Heatherwick Studio

Saturday, June 4th, 2011

Article source: Heatherwick Studio

Heatherwick Studio was commissioned to design a new café building, capable of seating 60 people; to replace a seafront ice cream kiosk in Littlehampton, a traditional seaside town on England’s south coast. Exposed to weather and vandalism, the narrow site sits between the sea and a parade of houses. The studio saw its challenge as being to produce a long, thin building without flat, two-dimensional façades. The building is sliced diagonally into ribbons which wrap up and over the building, forming a layered protective shell, open to the sea in front.
