Another Norwegian lookout, Seljord Watchtower was designed by Oslo and Bodø-based Rintala Eggertsson Architects. The watchtower was partly conceived and installed as a tribute to ‘Selma’, a legendary sea serpent living in the adjacent lake. The Seljord municipality is often visited by tourists, locals and avid bird-watchers. The twelve-metre-high tower has a periscope-like appearance and three lookout points: one at the tower’s apex, looking across Seljord lake, and two en route to the top. Also designed by Saunders Architecture, Stokke Forest Stair in Øye Sculpture Park, Norway, was completed in 2012. A clever woodland installation, the stairway provides the visitor with an elevated vantage point above the forest’s floor. The Stokke Forest Stair was transported by helicopter, and a careful analysis of the site meant no trees were felled in order to accommodate the structure.
The Calyx series of armchairs, loveseats, coffee tables and bistro tables hold you with their intricate diamond-shaped weaving pattern and a breezy modern vibe. Each of these fits into a wide array of outdoor lounge decorating styles that range from coastal and shabby chic to modern and minimal. For those who love something more dramatic, curvy and artistic, the Croissant series with its hand-sculpted frame is a great choice. Be it the easy armchair or the spacious sofa, this elegant collection manages to enthrall without disturbing the aura of the natural landscape it sits in. Finally there is the beautiful Oasis Collection – a series where the silhouette of every décor piece is inspired by the shape of a tulip. Built using a polyethylene and aluminum frame, its inherent organic vibe and inviting form bring serenity and style to the modern pool deck, patio or any other outdoor hangout.
Don’t forget about the big impact that can be made with rocky features such as large stones. If you’re lucky enough to have them naturally occurring in your yard, definitely use them to your advantage. If not, you can get help from your local landscaping company. Don’t attempt to move hefty boulders and rocks on your own. Some even require a crane when it comes to installation, so making a thoughtful decision on their placement is key. Looking to add more than native greenery to your modern yard? Planters are the perfect way to experiment with growing a range of plants in a smaller setting. Interested in growing plants that won’t survive the winter in your climate? Put them in a planter that you can move inside during the coldest months of the year. Not sure you’re up for planting an assortment of higher-maintenance plants in the ground? Try them out in a pot or planter.
