The concept for this project in Sydney was to create a public place that interpreted and revealed the form of the sandstone boat turning basin, which sits 25 metres below it, whilst creating a public platform for embracing distant harbour landscape views. The design of the lookout evolved to include a cantilever over the cliff edge to emphasise the sublime lookout experience of Sydney Harbour. In addition to the lookout, new entry gates and signage to the nearby 'Goat Paddock' open space were designed. These plate steel and picket gates were designed to have a significant presence, in keeping with the scale and character of the site. The materials palette for the lookout utilised standard materials and finishes to suit the industrial maritime context. These include universal steel beam sections, heavy guage hardwood decking, mass concrete, micaceous iron oxide protective coatings and stainless steel fittings.
