dwelle. (now + beach hut)

FKDA's 'Sheds for living' concept was probably Shedworking's most popular exclusive last year. Now, they've moved it on a little (and renamed it) but the newly-monikered dwelle. is still an appealing design for garden offices, and now also offers a modern take on the beach hut. It's rather snazzy, a low-maintenace structure made out of precast concrete panels with a remarkable glazed vitreous ceramic tile cladding and corten steel screens. On the floor, expect linoleum or sheet rubber. The tiled pattern on the roof is a reference to the iconic striped deckchair design.The flexible design means huts can be joined together in modular style, also offering plenty of space for wheelchair users.

You can see their “big” structure at Grand Designs Live in Birmingham, October 9-11.
