TIDAL RANGE + THE SUBLIME:

The strongest force effecting Partridge Island is the 8m tidal range. The true site for the project is the shore line as the dynamic tides give a strong sense of the sublime. T I D A L PA R K + C A B I N S :

The visitor’s cabins are located within this tidal range, creating an ever changing experience for visitors. At low tide the cabins are exposed and visitors can wonder along the ocean floor, but throughout the day the shore changes. The water levels rise and cabin entrances that were accessible as low tide begin to disappear. At high tide the cabins are separated from each other, but as the tide moves out tidal pools appear and the cabins are once again connected. 36
