A WATCHTOWER AS AN ELEMENT OF ENHANCEMENT OF THE LANDSCAPE AREA
Lookout Tower on Devínska Kobyla Mountain, Bratislava, Slovakia
Šebo Lichý architects
On the top of Devínska Kobyla, the highest point of the Devínska brána massif, a long-anticipated watchtower has been built by the Šebo Lichý architects studio, which will certainly increase the attractiveness of the location. The new lookout tower on Devínska Kobyla, whose investor is the Bratislava-Devínska Nová Ves district, is located at the intersections of popular tourist routes and will offer its visitors good accessibility and wonderful views. Its location near the borders of three countries represents a symbolic meaning in the form of the intersection of Central European cultures. The view of the three neighbouring countries is a motif reflected in three viewing platforms at different height levels. The platforms parametricaly grow climbing the tower and the climbing itself is a moving experience by enjoying the views of the circumambient scenery.
