Design for observation deck and turtle sanctuary building supporting care for the giant Rafetus Swinhoei softshell turtle .
Design of prefab building that has minimum foundation to be sited upon island within wetland and lake network to support the care and preservation of one of ythe rarest turtles in Asia. The CNC pods are supported on a steel frame that includes walkway, jetty and connection plates for the associated built elements.
We were looking for something special and different from the main stream, We didn't want the same cookie cutter approach we had found elsewhere. The team at COLE took us through the design process and delivered far beyond our initial expectations and we could not be more happy with the results.

People comment about the building when they visit, They love the way it fuses the old with the new. I love the way the light comes through the spaces in the morning it does not fail to make me smile
