Lands End Lookout

Locals headed for a trek on the Lands End trail are stumbling upon the newest marvel within Golden Gate National Park while Bay Area architects and conservationists have eagerly anticipated its recent opening. The Lands End Lookout and visitor’s center, perched 100 feet above the ruins of the historic Sutro baths, is drawing in spectators seeking to see the natural setting from a fresh and modernist perspective.

Nestled along the shoreline and offering a panoramic, 30-mile vantage of the rugged coastline, the building by Phoebe Schenker of the green design firm EHDD melds the best of low slung modernism with highbrow reductionism.
