Built to a limited budget for the

community these two striking concrete

shells have been optimised for acoustic

and structural performance. Situated

in a sunken garden beside the beach

this performance stage and shelter was

created from sprayed concrete.The

material used to form the delicate but

robust shapes is acoustically perfect for

focusing bothmusic and voice.
