Mjölk,The Guard Patrol, Rokytnice nad Jizerou, CZ. The project began in 2014, when we designed a series of small stops on the mountain.
It was conceived from the original intention of the municipality to build a classic lookout tower on the top. However, the morphology of the mountain proved unsuitable for the construction of an observation tower, as it did not provide sufficient views at standard heights. Therefore, we opted for the concept of several stops on the rocks that line the top of the mountain. ph. BoysPlayNice
