WALKERS’ REFUGE

Windy Knoll, The Peak District.

In collaboration with Ella Murrell

 

This Walkers’ Refuge is located on a popular walking route overlooking Mam Tor in the Peak District. Unique to the site is a nearby cave, which conceptually inspired this design as a place of rest and solitude. The translucent and flexible structure encompasses an organic form almost hidden from plain view, intriguing any passerby in need of a place rest.
