Gateway to Ecclesall Woods

Year | 2011

The project is based in Ecclesall Woods Sawmill site, operated by Sheffield City Council. The Clients ambition for the site is that it promote local craft and innovative use of timber in construction whilst educating a new generation about traditional practices. Part 1 of the project saw the team create a prototype platform and hide for the site creating a design language to be eventually employed in other areas, while Part 2 saw the design of an elevated tree canopy walkway and design report so that funding bodies could be approached for eventual future construction.
