Offering a majestic vista, Aurland Lookout is an architectural marvel. Located in Aurland, Norway—a country crammed with spectacular fjords, lush forests and great mountains—the lookout was designed by Bergen-based Saunders Architecture (a practice established by Canadian architect Todd Saunders in 1998). Completed in 2006, Aurland Lookout is referred to by the architect as ‘a walkway into the void’ and a ‘piece of architectural theater.’ The lookout measures thirty metres in length, and a 1.2-metre-high glass balustrade protects visitors from a sheer, vertical drop. Beyond this transparent barrier, the view of the fjord and mountains is breathtaking.
This observation tower rises above the river Mur at the Austrian border with Slovenia. Completed in 2009, it was designed by Munich-based architectural practice terrain for the city of Gosdorf in Austria. Made of steel and aluminium, the tower is intentionally incongruous in its Styria forest setting. Visitors to the tower enjoy revolving views of nature, as they ascend and descend its double spiral stairs. At its peak, a platform rests twenty-seven metres above the ground, offering views across the treetops of the wonderful riparian forest. It would appear that Norway is a country with many vantage points. Utsikten—or ‘the view’—was designed by Oslo-based Code Arkitektur. The rather quirky triangular viewing platform perches at the top of Gaular mountain on Norway’s western coast. With its raised corners, Utsikten affords three different viewpoints.
Weaving together stunning outdoor décor pieces with a natural texture and artistic brilliance, the latest lineup of furniture from Kenneth Cobonpue forces you to stand up and take notice. We absolutely love the iconic Peacock lounge chair that appears as majestic indoors as it does on the deck, patio or your apartment balcony. Inspired by the traditional wicker chair and the colorful vitality of a peacock, these lung chairs are absolute showstoppers. And so is the Babar modular piece that is part desk, part study and also seems to bring ample storage space. Another addition that is perfect for the tranquil rooftop corner. The company founded by Renato Roberti in 1959 is still one of the leading makers of luxury of outdoor furniture in wicker, rattan and everything else natural! That continues in 2017 as well with Roberti with the Gravity swing-sofa that sits at the heart of its new, luxurious and trendy outdoor collection. If Gravity is a bit too whimsical for your choice and you prefer something more grounded, then the Key West Collection of chic and colorful sofas, chairs and outdoor furniture should be perfect for your pool deck.
