And finally… 45 meter observation tower completes unique treetop experience
Danish architecture firm EFFEKT has designed a new attraction which will allow people to walk above the tress and experience the stunning nature of the forest from another perspective.
The Treetop Experience is a 600 meter seamless continuous ramp connected to a 45 meter tall spiralling observation tower located in the preserved forest, Gisselfeld Klosters Skove, one hour south of Copenhagen.
The route through the trees passes gently and sensitively through different varieties of forest, while minimizing the disturbance of the environment. The treetop walk is split into a higher and a lower walkway. The high walkway will pass through the oldest parts of the forest while the tower and the lower walkway are located in the younger areas. The high walkway also feature a series of activities for different user groups to learn and enjoy the forest qualities.
The culminating feature of the treetop walk is the tower and observation deck located 45 meters above the ground. The geometry of the tower is shaped to enhance the visitor experience, shunning the typical cylindrical shape in favour of a curved profile with a slender waist and enlarged base and crown. This does not only increase the stability of the tower but also increase the observation deck area at the top of the tower. Furthermore it also allows for better contact to the forest canopy.
The structure materials will be selected from the forest itself, allowing it to blend in perfectly with the surroundings.
The new Treetop Experience will be part of Camp Adventure, an existing adventure sports facility that include treetop climbing and aerial zip lines.
It is currently expected to open in summer 2018.
