Sundkrogsgade Pedestrian Bridge

Sundgrogsgade Gangbro - Street view

Developed as part of a small team while working at Dissing+Weitling Architecture in Copenhagen, Denmark.

Soaring high above between Lautrupskaj and Sundkrogsgade in Nordhavn, Copenhagen, the little bridge provides the lawyers at Kromann Reumert with a direct link from the old building to the new facilities facing Kalkbrænderihavnsgade.

I was involved in the detail design of the bridge and the glazing solutions.

The design addresses a series of complex contextual issues, and is legible both as a fully integrated component of the buildings it links, and as an independent architectural element.

The soaring concrete columns, seemingly detached from the old façade, hold the bridge forming an element geometrically and structurally simple which becomes virtually self-standing. Inside, the bridge glazing offers a great view over the harbour and it allows maximum climatic comfort even in the summertime.

The result is an elegant intervention high above the street which evokes sculptural art and provides a figurative link between the two buildings.
