Acoustic Shells in Littlehampton, England by Flanagan Lawrence

Sunday, August 13th, 2017

Article source: Flanagan Lawrence

Sited in a sunken garden beside the beach in Littlehampton, West Sussex, UK, these ‘Acoustic Shells’ act as a stage and shelter for the local community. Prompted by a desire to reinvigorate Littlehampton with its gentility of the early 20th century, the shells materially enhance the public open space of the adjacent greensward and satisfy an essential social need that is not provided elsewhere in the area.

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.
