Denmark-based design firm EFFEKT, unveils plans for a spiraling observation tower that is currently being built south of Copenhagen.

Aimed to offer panoramic views across the surrounding forest of Gisselfeld Kloster, Haslev, the structure itself will seem one with its surroundings through the usage of wood from the local trees to comprise its lattice structure, as well as the implementation of Corten, a weathered type of steel that form a stable rust-like appearance.

The 13-tiered hourglass-shaped tower will provide a new perspective that includes views of hilly landscape with lakes, wetlands, and creeks, in addition to an immersive experience from within and above the surrounding trees.

In addition, the walkway will integrate elements into the route for visitors to learn and interact with, while eventually concluding with the observation deck.

This new development is part of Camp Adventure, an existing adventure sports facility that already include treetop climbing and aerial zip lines.

In other new designs, this cantilevered residence overlooks a desert mountain landscape.
