The 45 meter high Forest Tower in Gisselfeld Kloster's forests close to Zealand's highest point. The Forest Tower is designed by EFFEKT Architects.
The cylinder shape was starting point for the construction, maximizing the base and the top while minimizing the center. The structure is a so-called hyperboloid form. The long vertical steel pipes aren't bent, but rotated 120 °, giving a curved expression, like an hourglass. This not only increases stability, but also enhances the experiencer, as the tree tops come close to the narrow middle piece. Moving up, the view tower broadens and the landscape opens as the distance between the ramps increases. It all culminates at the top with a 360° view of the landscape.
The main structure is made from corten steel - its reddish brown color fitting well with the colors of the forest. The oak boards on the ramp are made from local South Zealand oak trees from Bregentved and Gisselfeld Estates.
