An Oyster Shack Retreat By RAUM Architects

Scroll

French architects RAUM built a hangar retreat set amidst an oyster farm in a protected area of Brittany.

The temporary dwelling was designed to be flexible, consisting of two main areas: an office for the oyster farmer, and a space to relax. The entire structure is heated by a single wood space heater, and is topped by a green room system, featuring plants that were cultivated in the soil on site during the construction process. In a statement about the project, the architects state, “The project is designed to reflect the changing faces of the surrounding area – a basin at low tide and a sea loch at high tide – a moving object that can be divided, opened up, and closed again at will.”
