Egg-shaped Wooden Houseboat

“Located in in the estuary of the river beaulieu UK, The Egg is a place to stay and a laboratory for studying the life of a tidal creek, a collecting and collating centre with integral storage & display areas.

      The structure, built using boat building techniques and local materials, features a bed, a desk, a small stove, and a wet room.

   It will take on the patina of 730 daily tides below the water line, and 365 days of weathering by wind, rain and bleaching by the sun above.”
