Allowing guests of Coffee Ridge to reach out to the landscape beyond, The Observatory acts as a small event space overlooking the Blue Ridge Mountains of East Tennessee. The "Point" acts as a stage for weddings and other focus-based ceremonies offering a platform with a 360-degree backdrop. The structure also features a 50-foot tall tower that acts as a dining experience while seconding as a beacon for the guests in the helicopter arriving at the resort.
Observatory is a great example of design flexibility. Below are some of the original images of the design before it was modified to include the dining tower. The beauty of the design is that iteration and collaboration always strength and improve design quality. At CW we pride ourselves in the ability to adjust and iterate to meet client needs and solve problems. Check out the difference below.
