behold, the 60 seat east beach cafe on the south coast of england in littlehampton!


designed by the boldly adroit thomas heatherwick of heatherwick studio, the simultaneously industrial and organic building has a slender footprint, and is sliced into sculptural steel “ribbons,” which wrap up and over itself.


the gorgeous views are showcased in the front of the building through glass doors and windows, which open to the sea.


the building’s shell is finished with an oil-based coating that allows a patina to come through, while still protecting its structural purpose.


peruse the menu and make reservations here.
