One of the original tiny huts, repurposed as a gallery space for locals to enjoy in New Brighton
About the project

Art-Omat was one of the original five Tiny Huts created as part of the CCC- run competition in 2016. The ‘Tiny Huts’ were a play on English sea-side beach huts, each measured 2m by 2m, were placed in New Brighton's town centre to liven up the seaside suburb.

Most have found new homes but Art-Omat remains in the mall area – now with a new purpose! The tiny space is used as a mini gallery or exhibition space for local artists and businesses. LiVS manages the space and bookings; get in touch if you would like to book the Art-OMat for your project.
