The firm has come up with a creative use of the now unused power towers. A-B-A plans to remodel the towers and convert two of them into observation decks, offering a 360-degree view of the Norra Djurgården national park. The picnickers could also enjoy a light meal above the treetops.

Originally, these 12 towers were built for power transmission lines passing above the tree canopy of the Norra Djurgården. Since the towers are quite sturdy, they can easily support the visitors walking up the platforms to take in the skyline of Stockholm. The elevated platforms will offer the public a unique opportunity to enjoy a picnic in the sky and will draw more people to the park. The design firm believes that the elevated decks would offer incredible photography opportunities.

To give a more encouraging look to the viewing platforms atop the power towers and to soften the overall look of the structure, A-B-A has proposed the addition of wooden stairs and decks. Moreover, the wooden additions will reduce the overall weight of the completed observation platforms. The lower levels will also house kiosks selling refreshments.

It is very likely that the towers would only be accessible during certain fixed hours.
