The Larbert Loch Design Competition Exhibition is at the Atrium Space at Forth Valley Royal Hospital until the 7th June.

Our entry is entitled “Encircle”.

‘Encircle’ brings two interconnecting, concentric circles, joining the land to the loch side. The first circle projects horizontally from the top of the bank, with the second circle following the gentle slope down to the edge of the loch.

Encircle provides level access to a raised viewing platform to overlook the loch, while also providing waterside access via a gently sloping ramp, both of which are suitable for the ability of any user. The upper platform naturally forms a shelter for the lochside platform, with a sitting area included below.

The circles suggest regeneration, recycling and re-use. The forms link the land to the water and encourage visitors to linger and revisit the lochside. Encircle provides a simple, elegant design that echoes and emphasises the ideas of both inclusion and renewal.
