This large span structure is located on the beach and houses an indoor adventure golf course and café.  It is highly visible particularly from above from Hastings Castle so the building takes a sculptural amorphous form generated in response to the golf courses it sits within. The form is a jaunty addition to the beachfront location and the roof designed with the same care as the elevations to enhance the key view from above. The walls of the building are formed in a sinuous wave of clear u-channel glazing over gabions filled with salvaged dredged pebbles that match the beach.
