Loch Leven Bird Hide

ICOSIS Architects

A small crafted structure: part hide, part bridge and part screening of an enclosed viewing platform overhanging the loch. The open gaps between boards reduce wind loading and restrict visual disruption for the birds. The structure and inner faces of the screen are stained dark to emphasise the horizontality of the external boards. This is a place to stop and enjoy the natural beauty of the loch and its wildlife.
