Thumbs-up for cliff-top café

DUA Architecture has been given the thumbs-up for this cliff-top café at Highcliffe in Dorset. The scheme won Christchurch Borough Council's design competition, and will stand on the site of the original Crow's Nest Café. With room for around 100 diners, the £500,000 building will have a glazed seating area, timber columns and an exposed roof structure clad with cedar shingles. The café's shape was drawn from the headlands, 'which frame the views of the open sea'.
