An Elegant Oyster Shack by the Sea

An Elegant Oyster Shack by the Sea

Leave it to the French to devise the world’s most elegant oyster shack (complete with office and dining areas), located on a waterfront site in the south of Brittany.

Raum Architects, a studio founded in 2007 by Benjamin and Julien Boré Perraud (graduates of the School of Architecture in Nantes), designed the structure as a temporary dwelling and work space for an oyster farmer. The building is composed of two areas: an office/lounge space with a kitchen and dining area and a loft-like hangar for oyster processing; the two wings are connected by an outdoor dining patio area.
