The Natural History Society of Northumbria approached ec-architects and Kiosk Architecture & Design to donate a design for a new bird hide at Gosforth Park Nature Reserve. The new hide is bigger than the existing one and allows for a whole class of children to get involved in bird watching. One important feature of the brief was that the hide had to be designed so it could be built in panels by volunteers. We took the opportunity to contribute to a good cause and designed a hide with two internal levels for better views over the lake and timber cladding to suit the location.
