Camp Adventure Observation Tower by EFFEKT
Alexander Zaxarov
Jul 16, 2020

Camp Adventure Park is a new treetop route and a hyperbolic observation tower by Danish architecture office EFFEKT.

Located in the historic Gissenfeld Klosters Forest on South East Zealand, the 900-metre elevated boardwalk gradually leads people from ground level, through the treetops and culminates in a 45-metre tall tower, offering a panoramic view of the surrounding landscape.

Gissenfeld Klosters forest is a preserved forest one hour south of Copenhagen. As glacial woodland with rolling hills, ephemeral streams, lakes, wetlands and meadows, the forest contains several natural biotopes, a variation of animal species and a rich bird life. A challenge of the project was to create an exciting and easily accessible walk through the forest without disrupting its natural environment. To minimize the project’s impact on its surroundings, the boardwalk is lifted above the natural ground as it zigzags in and out between the existing trees and adjusts to the existing conditions and habitats of the forest. The result is a new, seamless way to move through the forest, lifted above the ground while experiencing the scenic nature.
