Phase 2 of Safe Trestles – an ideas competition that explores ways to create safe, low-impact access to Trestles – is complete. The winning scheme, The Wave, was collaboratively designed and developed by Co-LAB design office, an emerging award winning architecture practice based in Los Angeles. The design is based on the informal pathways cut through the wetlands each year by surfers.

The Wave’s ambition is to keep it wild, make it safe, and safeguard the area for future users - keeping this landscape safe, protected and pristine, for generations to come.
