With the desire to inspire conversation between locals and tourists alike, the ECE Architecture firm collaborated with the talented Mark Sephton from Creative Forager to create this interesting beach hut. The hut installation is made entirely of mirror panels that reflect the gorgeous beach-front where it sits.
The beach hut is exactly the same size as all of the other huts scattered along the United Kingdom beach-front. This particular hut took Sephton and the ECE team a total of six weeks to design and install.
The hut is made from acrylic mirrored sheets that were cut with a laser and placed on top of wooden panels. This conversational artwork has already sparked interest among beach-goers. It not only creates conversation but it is also a great place to snap a fun and unique photo for both tourists and local residents.
