This project at the Belgian seaside aimed at bringing the ocean into the space. This has inspired us to investigate the use of materials from the sea as resources for the creation of the walls and ceiling.  Tiny shells were mixed in the BC Materials clay plaster. The floor is made by grinding down shells that are locally sourced by the clients before combining them perfect with natural clay plaster. This gives the floor a terrazzo-like aesthetic while the shells add a shimmering effect, that echoes the surface of the sea.
