Brut comme le sable/ Beach rusty kiosk


Qui a dit que l’industriel et la nature faisaient mauvais ménage ? Pourtant pris dans leur aspect le plus brut, ils se marient très bien, comme le montre ce kiosque de plage à Torquay, en Australie.

Les plaques d’acier qui le composent ont servi à protéger des bâtiments pendant les dernières inondations et leur aspect brut, légèrement rouillé, a été gardé tel quel pour la création des murs de ce kiosque. Ce lieu fourni aux baigneurs et aux surfeurs, du café de haute qualité, des vestiaires et des toilettes. Un recyclage très réussi.


Who said industrial and nature did not fit? If you consider them in their most basic form, they go very well together, as this beach kiosk in Torquay, Australia, clearly demonstrate.

The steel plates chosen to build the kiosk were previously used to protect buildings during the recent Victoria floods and their gross appearance, slightly rusty, was kept unchanged for the creation of the walls of the booth. This place provided bathers and surfers, high quality coffee, changing rooms and toilets. A very successful recycling.
