Hannafore project

The Hannafore project revolves around a concrete outfall pipe located on Hannafore beach in West Looe, Cornwall.
It explores ways of redesigning the surface of the pipe to enhance its ecological function (through the creation of habitat for marine species) while maintaining its secondary use as a walkway by people, and its primary function as a sewage outfall pipe.
Two different design proposals where developed, incorporating different divisions of the space between ecological and human functions as well as each providing habitat for a slightly different range of species.
Test samples of the two proposals were manufactured from concrete and attached to the surface of the pipe, to observe the human and ecological response to the designs over the course of a five-month trial.
