This lookout structure has been designed to vertically cantilever next to, and project above, an adjacent retaining wall. The structure uses dense engineering bricks to stabilise the base. The box section construction provides torsional stiffness, is lightweight, and minimises material usage as the structural cross section tapers in along its length. The brick dimensions and proportions inform the overall structural form - its vertical poise referencing the vertical shuttering imprints in the concrete wall.
