The Folly 

Astral Ltd worked as the main contractor, alongside WGP Architects to design and construct a truly unique and modern folly. This was especially challenging due to the geometric shaped structure, and the need for absolute precision. The structure, serving as part lookout; part entertaining space; and part retreat and unashamedly free of typical building constraints, aimed to celebrate its beautiful grounds.

A recursive algorithm generating a logarithmic spiral, alike those found in nature, of fractal triangles from anodised aluminium externally and multi-ply internally.

The minimal mechanical heating & cooling requirements, achieved through orientation, solar positioning, insulation, and shading, align with a wellness-focus. The ambition to push the boundaries of integrated design and fabrication for heightened material efficiency addresses broader environmental challenges.
