Nestled in Camley Street Natural Park in London, a small green oasis in Argent’s enormous King’s Cross Goods Yard scheme, is Viewpoint, the competition-winning installation by young Finnish practice AOR. Its floating timber deck provides temporary shelter for visitors to the park and a small caesura for contemplation. The design, based on the Finnish Laavus rural shelters, is clad in Cor-Ten steel for resilience, and lined with timber for comfort and warmth.
