Devil’s Corner was designed in 2015 by Australian architectural practice Cumulus Studio. Located in Apslawn, Tasmania, Devil’s Corner is one of Tasmania’s largest vineyards. A project for Brown Brothers, Devil’s Corner incorporates a cellar door, lookout and marketplace. Created using a a series of timber clad shipping containers, the lookout encourages visitors to explore the vineyard through a number of curated views. The horseshoe-shaped Grand Canyon Skywalk is a see-through, cantilevered bridge. Jutting out seventy feet from a side canyon in Grand Canyon West, the Skywalk is elevated at a dizzying 4,000 feet above the Colorado River. Designed and engineered by Lochsa Engineering & MRJ Architects, the Skywalk was commissioned by the Hualapai Indian Tribe who manage it as a way to accrue money from tourism.
A big family house overtakes the space, appearing almost as majestic as the trees surrounding it. The white picket fence gives it a friendlier feeling and creates a subtle barrier between the passersby and property itself. A thin picket fence can allow those who pass your house to have a little peek into your garden, but thanks to its pointed look it remains a boundary that protects your space. A large house can give the impression that it’s looming over the low picket fence, making it appear even smaller than it is. Color-coordinated with a fence on the porch, this white picket fence contrasts the house with its short height. A tall white house built in a Victorian style looks like it escaped out of a dream! The whole setting is absolutely magical and greatly perfected by the white picket fence that carries a bit of a vintage style itself.
The Calyx series of armchairs, loveseats, coffee tables and bistro tables hold you with their intricate diamond-shaped weaving pattern and a breezy modern vibe. Each of these fits into a wide array of outdoor lounge decorating styles that range from coastal and shabby chic to modern and minimal. For those who love something more dramatic, curvy and artistic, the Croissant series with its hand-sculpted frame is a great choice. Be it the easy armchair or the spacious sofa, this elegant collection manages to enthrall without disturbing the aura of the natural landscape it sits in. Finally there is the beautiful Oasis Collection – a series where the silhouette of every décor piece is inspired by the shape of a tulip. Built using a polyethylene and aluminum frame, its inherent organic vibe and inviting form bring serenity and style to the modern pool deck, patio or any other outdoor hangout.
Another Norwegian lookout, Seljord Watchtower was designed by Oslo and Bodø-based Rintala Eggertsson Architects. The watchtower was partly conceived and installed as a tribute to ‘Selma’, a legendary sea serpent living in the adjacent lake. The Seljord municipality is often visited by tourists, locals and avid bird-watchers. The twelve-metre-high tower has a periscope-like appearance and three lookout points: one at the tower’s apex, looking across Seljord lake, and two en route to the top. Also designed by Saunders Architecture, Stokke Forest Stair in Øye Sculpture Park, Norway, was completed in 2012. A clever woodland installation, the stairway provides the visitor with an elevated vantage point above the forest’s floor. The Stokke Forest Stair was transported by helicopter, and a careful analysis of the site meant no trees were felled in order to accommodate the structure.
