Coastal Cottage Examples for Rosewood Beach

The permanent bathrooms that Rosewood Beach needs could also be cottage-like. This would be an inexpensive way to get the amenities we need. An unintrusive structure not directly on the small beach would give dominance to  Nature. The money saved from the approx. $3 million dollar Beach House could be used for improvements to bring the lost beauty back to the Rosewood beach area. One great allocation would be to give us a coastline at Rosewood with coves and breakwaters with boulders instead of the metal groins which currently visually pollute the site.

Above are some images from near and far, as a suggestion for a bathroom building. The concession stand could be a separate small structure, if it is needed. 

Inexpensive quaint unintrusive wooden structures are used on many beach areas.  Above are  scenes of New England, and of Scandinavia—the home grounds of Jens Jensen, the dean of American Prairie-style landsape architects whose studio was here in Ravinia.
