Our Proposal For the PAPE watch tower competition! The Latvian rural natural reserve called for a proposal to replace their previous watch tower which was struck by lightning!
We imagined a tower which would extend the existing pathway into a continuous Spiral, which would gradually expand to offer seating area at the best views! The materials reference the original tower vernacular in timber as decking, and thatch to clad the hand rail. The watch tower can simultaneously offer both shaded seating and open seating, for all weathers, offering an experience throughout the year!

The proposal received an honorable mention!
