The hidden water on this site is the home of a small family of European beavers. In parts, the small lake is only 10 meters away from the main path, but most visitors to the island do not know about it. Impenetrable bushes and mounds of earth are intentional barriers to protect the wildlife from visitors. Discrete raised platforms could cut through the thickness to create lookout points for viewing the beavers and the lake from afar, while keeping the wildlife undisturbed. This intervention keeps the visitor moving, looking and discovering.
