Observatory Stairs

In April 2012, I proposed a scheme for the Plaza of Jacmel in which an elevated platform, accessible  by a set of narrow scaffolding stairs, would allow views of the historic district. Partly inspired by New York City’s High-Line, this design gesture was triggered by the magnificent views of the historic district and bay of Jacmel one could obtain by climbing to the roof-top of Hôtel de La Place (former Pension Kraft). In this design, the platform proposed would reach the same level of Hôtel de La Place’s rooftop and provide the same views I was lucky to experience during my first research trip in November 2011.
