Valley Lake Lookout
This project invites the visitor to enjoy the sublime beauty of the quarry space by creating a simple elegant viewing platform. The extended cantilever of the platform extends out and over into the man-made quarry providing thrilling views from and towards the platform.
The well-considered detailing of the structure mirrors the site’s industrial past and allows the landscape to dominate the experience. The jury was impressed at how the project inspires the celebration of suburbia through the simplicity of the platform and the drama and boldness of its positioning.
