Big shell Building By Heatherwick Studio

This strange big shell is a café "The East Beach Cafe" situated in Littlehampton.It is designed by Heatherwick Studio.

The shape is inspired by a motion-filled, fluid, organic idea. The building is sliced diagonally into ribbons which wrap up and over the building, the glass façade establishing an relationship between inside and out. Its structural steel shell finished with an oil-based coating that permits a rust-like patination to develop without affecting structural performance.
