PROJECT DESCRIPTION

A 9m x 4m elevated polygonal occasional use leisure building, projecting over the sea. The Tea Hut was built at the landward end of steel rails and slid seaward when finished. The building is glazed all round and has a glazed floor panel, giving stunning views down and across Loch Fyne. The superstructure comprises a galvanised steel frame consisting of thin roof and floor plates separated by an offset steel shear/torsion core and slender perimeter columns; timber carcassing to form the roof pyramid, and full height double glazing all round.
