“The metal framework [of this observation tower] is clad with narrow wooden strips secured with vertical bands of lumber. The transparency of the elongated quadrilateral form maintains a delicate presence, minimally imposing on its natural surroundings.” (via ARHIS architects: observation tower in jurmala)

Visit No. 4 to Maryport

My first impression at being back at the site was ‘why on earth would someone want to building something on that hill!’. Further walks around the site reminded me of the reasons – the masterplan provided a route down the hill to connect the transport hub, the Georgian grid of the town down to the harbour area - this route would be emphasised and reinforced by a building on the hill; the steep slope down the the River Ellen will provide for a dramatic location for the cookery school; and finally the site has the benefit of being in an urban area while also having a strong connection with the landscape and the sea. 

While I was there the tide went from being fully out to fully in, which gave a dramatic change in appearance.

New photos to follow shortly!
