Seems like recently we’ve been a little bit partial when it comes to RAUM Architects, but it’s just hard not to share their remarkable work. Their project in the countryside of the Ria d’Etel includes an oyster farm hangar as well as temporary dwell.

The facility is conceived to reflect the changing character of the surrounding area- a basin at low tide and a sea loch at high side. The large space includes two main areas- a hangar and an office, which gives the oyster farmer a place to rest after hours of working alone. This is not the only place where one can relax, though. The accessible roof provides an excellent view of the sea and rural surrounding. The roof itself is a green system with plants cultivated during the four months of construction work, using soil collected from the site.
