COURTYARD FACADE


The roof is designed in a modular system of 5 meter by 5 meter intervals. The structural framework of the roof follows the underlying five-meter-wide platforms that make up the interior of the restaurant. With each platform the structure lowers itself 0.5 meters. the modular roof can be rotated 90 to 180 degrees in accordance with the lighting and viewing needs of the restaurant’s clients.

1 - PORTHOLES IN THE FLOOR OF THE CABIN ALLOW VISITORS TO EXPERIENCE THE MARINE LIFE THAT LIVE UNDER THE CABINS. THEY ALSO PROVIDE LIGHT FOR PLANTS AND MICROORGANISMS. 2 - THE SYSTEM OF BIODEGRADABLE NETS ACTS LIKE A REEF PROVIDING SHELTER AND FOOD FOR SMALLER FISH AND MARINE LIFE

ECOLOGICAL RESTORATION HIGH POND IS ONE OF THE MANY BODIES OF WATER THAT RESIDE IN KICKAPOO STATE PARK. THE LAKES AND PONDS FOUND TODAY ARE THE RESULT OF A PREVIOUS COAL MINEFROM OVER ONE HUNDRED YEARS AGO.

POPULATIONS OF FISH AND MICROORGANISMS INCREASE, INCREASING SPORT FISHING QUALITY

THE BIODEGRADABLE SYSTEM OF NETS (Left) HOOKED UNDERNEATH EACH CABIN ACTS IN A SIMILAR WAY AS A CORAL REEF, PROVIDING LARGE AMOUNTS OF SHELTER AND FOOD FOR SMALLER FISH AND MARINE LIFE. GIVING THESE SMALLER ORGANISMS PROTECTION TO BREED AND GROW WILL INCREASE THE OVERAL FISH POPULATION OF HIGH POND. EACH CABIN WILL BE BUILT OUT OF FALLEN OR RECYCLED TREES FROM THE SITE (below).
