Offering a majestic vista, Aurland Lookout is an architectural marvel. Located in Aurland, Norway—a country crammed with spectacular fjords, lush forests and great mountains—the lookout was designed by Bergen-based Saunders Architecture (a practice established by Canadian architect Todd Saunders in 1998). Completed in 2006, Aurland Lookout is referred to by the architect as ‘a walkway into the void’ and a ‘piece of architectural theater.’ The lookout measures thirty metres in length, and a 1.2-metre-high glass balustrade protects visitors from a sheer, vertical drop. Beyond this transparent barrier, the view of the fjord and mountains is breathtaking.
When you picture your dream home, does it have a white picket fence? It has become somewhat of an American dream – a little suburban house with a white fence that gives the outdoors a charming look and clearly says home. Such a fence is perfect for traditionally built houses and newer, more modern houses as well. Check out this roundup of homes with a white picket fence for inspiration. The white picket fence immediately pops into our head when we think of “classy domestic lifestyle.” It’s such a traditional feature that represents the good family life, either in the suburbs or the countryside. The bright color of the fence marvelously accompanies the pastel tone of the house’s exterior and its white trim. It’s obvious this color palette is harmonious and stunning.
This viewing platform by Austrian architect Zamp Kelp, was created for the EXPO 2000 in Hanover, Germany. Curiously sited on the border of an old quarry, the platform juxtaposes a statuesque staircase made using quarry stone with a spectacular cantilevered glass and steel platform. Architectural studio Cooke Fawcett designed a 3.5-metre-wide and thirty-two-metre-long raised platform, that spans the width of a multistorey car park in Peckham, south-east London. Sited on the car park’s rooftop deck, the elevated steel and hardwood timber promenade was completed this year. Called the Peckham Observatory, it offers views across the London skyline as well as the capital’s much overlooked southern neighbourhoods.
