This challenging space has a sea defence wall alongside which boats used to moor. Now surrounded by shingle and extremely exposed, galvanised security fencing was used to create the feel of privacy, with some wind-break, yet still keeping the views open. The pergola and deck were made from locally salvaged sea defence timbers, giving a suitably rugged theme. Walls and new planters were rendered with Monocouche.

Planting consists of the toughest salt and wind tolerant plants; Santolina, Artemisia arbrotanum, Rosmarinus, Phormium, Cordyline, Sedum spectabile vars. and Stipa arundinacea. Crambe maritima connects to the local beach flora.
