Retreat + Hall - Site Map 1:500
Her recent project as part of Stage 3 is a music retreat and community performance hall in Balloch, for the charity Sistema. The proposal uses active and passive systems that utilise the environmental nature of the site which lies on the bank of the River Leven just before it joins Loch Lomond. The retreat is on stilts and sits on an island which provides seclusion whilst still engaging with the town. The project emphasises the sense of journey and is both a destination and a starting point for adventures beyond. The incorporated walkways connect the different buildings and allow people to explore the boundary where water meets land.
