Danish Architectural studios COBE and DISSING+WEITLING completed this summer the traffic hub Køge Nord Station, in Denmark, a gateway to Copenhagen that provides a sustainable transport. The project includes a footbridge, a train station and a parking. The foot-bridge represents a landmark of 225 meters long and it’s part of the future and the development of Køge area. “A development“ says Dan Stubbergaard, architect of COBE, “driven by innovation, pioneering spirit and a bold outlook that is embodied by the station bridge and the related facilities”.
Standing above the streets and the railway lines, the bridge offers panoramic views and can be considered an architectural attraction, thanks to the metallic, curvilinear structure made of anodized aluminium panels. While transiting or waiting, people find an interior space covered by wooden slats, seating areas and glazed openings on the south facade, offering a pleasant stay. The bridge is connected to the ground through stairs and elevators.
