In a natural environment, the wooden bridge spans a canal and connects a pedestrian and bike path. The client consciously decided to use timber, as it is an ecological materia, to create a particularly sustainable structure. The bridge design distinguishes itself by its efficiency. The simple design with four main girders of laminated wood and a decking of mastic asphalt on a timber board is inexpensive and easy to maintain. The steel railing is provided with a wooden handrail, so that the material can be experienced on the bridge.
