The Kalo Tower, an important piece of structure in Danish history which dates back to 700 years, has recently gone through a major renovation for the first time in centuries. Copenhagen-based architectural studio MAP took on the role of adding a spiral staircase inside the archaeological site to allow visitors to experience the essence of its former glory and interact with history.
Situated near the coast north of the Jutland Peninsula, the tower is known to be a major tourist attraction of the country. Visitors can now reach the top of what’s left of the Kalo Tower by ascending the minimalist, zigzag staircase. All the openings and windows of the tower can now be accessible through a balcony that juts out as a break of each landing. On top of the medieval structure, one can find the best seats in the house for the breathtaking views of the coast and countryside.
