A timber-framed and clad hut on galvanised supports used as a retreat for fishermen

This is a sophisticated primitive hut worthy of Murcutt or Leplastrier but set on a Hampshire lake.

The timber construction on galvanised supports hovers over the lake. It is as much about time passing as fishing – crafted slatted timber panels allow the building to hunker down in the winter, then open up in the spring to become delicate brise-soleils.

Timber-framed glass screens slide away and a solid building becomes transparent.
