Clear Rock Lookout is a viewing platform that celebrates the breathtaking views of the landscape and wildlife. The structure is located under a limestone cliff, and has to be “discovered” when approached from the top of the mass. The structure provides a gradual reveal of the architecture and strengthens the panorama of the developing landscape.

The owner chose this land primarily for its surroundings and views, after years of slowly traversing and mapping the forested cliff. The modern form contrasts with the Hill Country vernacular, the naturally weathered steel was chosen to age with the environment.

Large sheets of glass, a variety of woods, and highly detailed assembly complete the expression of this architecture.
