Our winning submission Eastbourne Beach Hut

We entered the Eastbourne The Huts design competition because the brief sounded like an exciting opportunity to exercise our design skills. We enjoy challenging ourselves, and the prospect of developing a creative response within a tight budget was a fantastic opportunity.

Our dynamic team ncludes a varied range of skills that have all been incorporated within our design delivery. Each member of the team has had an idividual input.  As we all have a passion for community based schemes, the desire for the beach hut to be iconic and provide a new local facility was an extremely stimulating and rewarding project for us to become a part of.

 Re-bourne takes the form and shape of a traditional beach hut but that is where the similarities stop. The project has been designed to contrast sensitively with its surroundings. This project has been created to stand out as a beacon to mark the regeneration of the area.

A traditional beach hut is a private facility which offers little to the community other than its presence. Re-bourne’s main aim is to offer everything it can to the community. The architecture and construction celebrates the annual local community waste collection from the beach acting as a celebration of this activity. Functionally the hut also offers a static and dynamic performance and display space as a traditional performance venue, or as a more intimate display space or a public presentation vehicle Re-bourne opens up to the community in every way possible.

Re-bourne is clad in gabion walls filled with a variety of recycled plastic bottles. Each of these will offer the opportunity for community groups, organisations and individuals to leave a message in, acting as a visible time capsule for the town. The rest of the building is a steel structure with galvanised steel shutters with one of the elevations given over to a translucent screen upon which will be projected images and messages. It will have power and water supply.
