This wooden tower by Norwegian architect Lars J Berge provides an accessible hide for birdwatchers on an island north of Bergen.
Herdla Birdwatching Tower is situated at the tip of Askøy – a low-lying island in Hordaland county, off Norway's west coast.
The landscape of open grasslands, shallow sea and freshwater ponds makes the area, called Herdla, an important location for migrating and breeding birds, as well as a popular destination for birdwatchers.
The local council, which manages the conservation of area, asked Berge's Bergen-based studio LJB Architecture and Landscape to install the tower on a seaside spot that offers good views. It connects with a series of new paths, designed to make the unique landscape more accessible to visitors.
The concrete foundations of a structure dating back to the second world war were repurposed as the tower's base, which helped to reduce the overall cost of the project.
This existing structure was adapted to accommodate a pumping station used to control the water level of the surrounding ponds and agricultural land.
