This is a multi-award winning project for New Forest District Council that delivered 119 beach huts and new public realm within an 'inhabited sea defence.'

Milford-on-Sea beach huts is a multi-award winning project, providing 119 beach huts that form a new seawall and that is designed to resist a 1-in-200 year storm event. The project innovatively integrates public realm, beach huts, public art and sea defences into a single structure, creating what we call 'inhabited infrastructure'. The project uses Graphic Concrete and Reckli formwork to creatively make concrete beautiful. The project won the BCIA Climate Resilience Project of the Year 2018, a Civic Trust Award and the international Architecture Masterprize.
