São Paulo’s Estudio Flume has designed a beach hut on Brazil’s Jaguanum Island for fishermen to sell food during the day and store boats at night.

The Beach Kiosk and Boat Refuge was created for a couple who are caiçaras – the descendants of indigenous people, Europeans and Africans – who are known as the original inhabitants of the coastal south-eastern and southern regions of Brazil.

Estudio Flume said it designed the multifunctional space, which includes a kitchen and sitting area, to provide them with a sustainable income.
