55-02 - Sixteen (makers) 2009


55/02 is a brightly painted steel structure located within a stand of trees at Cock Stoor on the north shore of Kielder Water. Its name refers to the latitude and longitude of the site and highlights the importance of the building's location to its design, where key sitelines contribute to its unusual layout, and seating orientates visitors towards particular views looking out onto the lake and smaller inlets nearby. Sixteen* makers are an experimental architectural practice with a particular interest in design through making, where the nature and properties of materials combine with a site's environmental conditions to inform their design process and eventually produce responsive architecture.
