The building is glazed all round and has a glazed floor panel, giving stunning views down, and out, across Loch Fyne. The superstructure comprises: a galvanised steel frame consisting of thin roof and floor plates separated by an offset steel shear/torsion core and slender perimeter columns; timber carcassing to form the roof pyramid, and full height double glazing all round.
The sliding rails below are supported on a slender galvanised tubular steel subframe, in turn sitting on a substantial pad foundation below. Twin rock anchors to the rear resist overturning. Accommodation includes a kitchenette, toilet, writing desk, fold-down bed and wood burning stove. Flexible service connections allow the structure to be slid back in for maintenance.
