Køge Nord Station is not only a traffic hub for the entire Copenhagen region connecting high-speed trains, local trains and the busiest motorway in Denmark, but is also a distinctive landmark for green mobility. The project consists of a 225-meter-long footbridge, a train station and an associated park and ride facility. The north side of the bridge provides a stunning 180 degrees panoramic view over the landscape and traffic lines. Padded with wooden lamellae, the inside of the bridge becomes a warm and welcoming area, while the outside has a more rough expression with perforated steel plates matching the materials of the surrounding infrastructual system.
