In the countryside surrounding Aarhus, Denmark, the 700 year-old Kalø Castle has been revamped by Copenhagen-based MAP Architects. The firm has installed zig-zag stairs made of steel and clad in ash wood with balconies made of glass allowing tourists to admire the landscape. Although the site has been a tourist attraction for decades, it is now fully accessible to the public. The stairs are only supported by the castle at four points to minimize damage to the monument.
