Designed by Nina Tolstrup of Studiomama, this beach house is a back-to-basics get-away, concentrating on on the providing basic amenities and functional spaces for eating, relaxing, and sleeping, with it’s main focus on the view (as it should be).
Nina bought a small plot of land on the shore of Whitestable, a seaside town in north-east Kent. The ‘Chalet’ is a 388-square-foot structure located amongst a small plot of other tiny cottages/beach houses.
The home sits on galvanized steel stilts and is clad with cedar shingles. The interior features sawn softwood, with a single large window providing the majority of the homes lighting, as well as the sea view. A sleeping loft accommodates Nina and her husband, while their two children sleep on the ground floor in bunk beds.
