Since picket fences draw much attention to themselves with their classy look, they also draw much attention to your front yard. Make the best of it by creating a blooming yard. A charming little house with a calming gray interior is made magical by a really low white picket fence. The functionality of the fence is not a priority in this case – it’s all about the strong decorative value. Picket fences have been around for decades, growing in popularity with each year. Seeing an old-fashioned house with such a fence shouldn’t be a surprise but we’re still stunned about how much fresher a setting looks like, all because of a white fence. A house and a fence can blend together so well they seem to become one entity. The exterior feels synchronized in the most wonderful way, capturing the allure of simplicity.
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.
