The new main entrance emphasises the characteristic landscape. Visitors leave their car behind in the parking space and head towards the service building to start their exploration on foot. Service and information facilities illustrate the experience to follow. The new entrance increases Tiveden’s accessibility to all; allowing visitors to venture even further into the wild. Platforms and walkways built of untreated wood are a discreet addition that leaves the surroundings intact, while offering views of Tiveden’s spectacular rocky terrain.
Materials are durable, low maintenance and locally sourced.
With careful footsteps, we have designed new ways to view nature. We are very pleased that we have managed to get the most out of the setting for visitors, with minimal impact on the surroundings.Anders Tväråna, Project Architect
All materials are locally sourced, durable and low maintenance. The untreated rough-hewn siding, solid wood planks, concrete and metal grating, age gracefully with the natural surroundings.
Developed specifically for the structures at Tiveden, undulating clapboard siding subtly references the park’s dramatic rock formations.
Approximately 100,000 people visit Tiveden National Park each year; leaving a minimal impact on nature was crucial. Making a positive contribution, an area that was formerly a car park was integrated back into the natural landscape with the help of a seed bank.
