as a component of a universal call to develop a vaporous lodge in the core of lake annecy in france, JCPCDR engineering has won first prize with ‘the observatory’. the challenge, titled ‘le celebration des cabanes’, stipulated that the intercession must be fabricated utilizing wood from the area and built nearby by the designers. the triumphant venture deconstructs the regular lodge to make a contemporary structure that offers perspectives out to the dazzling characteristic environment.
the observatory is settled under the trees and deliberately situated to pick up perspectives out over the clearing of the timberland. after touching base at the structure, walkers are driven by means of an incline to a little raised stage, where they can appreciate a snapshot of quiet in the midst of nature. the incline is open to wheelchairs and carriages and is structured by JCPCDR as a continuation of the slant of the site.
with its twofold pitched rooftop, the observatory reviews the vernacular picture of a conventional lodge or cabin, rehashed by realistic lines. the separating of the wooden supports, in any case, gives a bend on convention by combining indoor and open air situations. the client first enters the observatory under a murky rooftop and gets comfortable with this dull environment, before moving towards the stage, which is washed in light gratitude to the open structure.
developed totally from fir timber, the observatory superbly incorporates into its backwoods condition. it permits not exclusively to watch the fauna and verdure, yet on account of its permeable structure, offers an asylum for plants and creatures. all through the seasons, the contemporary compositional article turns into a grandstand for the earth, offering a spot to watch nature and an out and out vivid experience.
