Beach Hut - Jeff Brickell Architects | ArchiPro

Beach Hut

A new coastal ‘hut’ as beach retreat.

Having camped on the site, the clients wanted a simple bach that retained the magic of camping holidays. The hut was to reference a high-country hut rather than a flat roofed pavilion.  The site is set back from the beach at the foot of a bush clad valley.

A simple floor plan was employed, with wet areas grouped together and the sleeping and living functions separated. At only 36m2, a semi enclosed outdoor deck adds vital living space to the north. A modest palette of materials was employed including; standard residential trusses (dark stained), Lawson’s Cypress sarking, Birch plywood linings, NZ Beech shiplap cladding and recycled timber window/door joinery.

Intended as stage one of two, the hut will eventually become guest accommodation.
