The Swedish Royal Court commissioned Stockholm-based architecture firm Anders Berensson Architects to envision a new power tower for the urban national park Norra Djurgården in central Stockholm. The court will improve 12 unused big power towers in central Stockholm and bring them into the life.
Called Power Tower, the A-B-A will transform two of the disused picnic towers by adding observations desks where the visitors can get 360-degree views of Norra Djurgården, the city’s sprawling national park.
The towers are constructed to carry heavy power lines over the tree tops in the park making them strong enough to hold platforms and high enough to give a great view. The added stairs and platforms are made in wood to reduce weight and to contrast to the old structure.
The towers are designed with a kiosk in the lower levels that can sell snacks and beverages for the picnic and also open and close the towers for the public at summertime.
