Gibraltar-based architectural practice Arc Designs have transformed a WWII military platform into a stunning viewing platform aptly named Skywalk.

Located in the Upper Rock Nature Reserve, the base is close to the highest point in the region and once serviced as a platform for anti-aircraft Bofors guns. It now boasts a 2.5-metre-wide glazed walkway, giving viewers stunning 360-degree views of Europe, Africa, the Mediterranean Sea and the Atlantic Ocean.

Ensuring the Skywalk’s safety, the structure has been secured to the ground with various rock anchors ensuring it can support both the considerable visitors and the incredible 93 mph wind speeds.
