Watchtower - in and out

Ing. arch. Sára Šálková Roeselová


The tower is representing one of the possible adaptations of the former border guard tower of the Iron Curtain. The tower's primary function is preserved, ie the view of the landscape. At the same time, it is shaped to provide the possibility of inward orientation. The tower has a shape that clearly defines the way of orientation in the landscape. Within the various places where the preserved watchtowers in the Czech and Slovak borders are located, it is perfect for elevated places with a clear direction of a view or for placement at the edge of a forest or other landscape interfaces, to which it could orient its back.
