A 2011 construction in Scotland, the Bavent House is a four-bedroom family home designed by the United Kingdom’s Hudson Architects. The house echoes the typology of traditional beach huts but modernizes the look by increasing the size and geometric irregularity of its forms. The exterior is clad with black zinc and natural Iroko timber, and the roof is covered with ventilated zinc, which resembles the tar of colloquial architecture. A rather large home, the U-shaped plan has two wings, the living room and guest bedrooms on one side, the kitchen and utility rooms on the other, with the two main bedrooms above. The sheer size of these forms differentiates the house from local beach huts. Additionally, there are wind-sheltered enclaves cut into the building, adapting the house to its natural environment and adding visual complexity. These innovations are particular to the contemporary design while working to foster harmony between the home and the surrounding marshes and farms.
