Case studies

Poised above a man-made lake in Hampshire, the Fishing Hut is a small but beautifully crafted timber building; it has an elegant simplicity achieved by the integration of design, structure and sustainability.

Niall McLaughlin Architects has designed a new cafe at the end of the pier, commissioned in an RIBA competition. It is a simple timberframed glazed pavilion which gives all-round views to the sea; the timber structure is a repetitive form which resembles the skeleton of a beached whale or the ribs of a ship.
