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 Borť 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.
