Beach hut creates a sea of interest in Worthing

A MIRRORED beach hut in Worthing has been creating quite a buzz among sunseekers this week.

The design was installed at the town’s seafront, close to the pier, early on Saturday morning.

It was part of an art project by Worthing-based architects, ECE Architecture, based in Goring Road.

ECE’s managing director, Stuart Eatock said: “We were overwhelmed by the positive response from the public, I think this calls for a permanent installation.”

The hut features a total six mirrored panels – four on the wall and two on the roof – and took a total of six weeks to complete.

They used laser-cut mirrored acrylic sheets applied to wooden panels finished with dark grey shadow gaps. The mirrored acrylic was affixed just hours before joining it all together at 4am on Saturday morning.

It's hoped the new hut will be a permanent addition to Worthing's seafront
