schneider + schumacher spans raunheim harbor with olhafen bridge


frankfurt-based architects schneider + schumacher has finalized the construction of ‘ölhafen bridge’, a curved structure spanning the entrance of an industrial harbor in raunheim, germany. the bridge emphasizes the concept’s leisure use, offering unobstructed views across the water.

situated along the river main, the scheme features a spiraling access ramp leading into a 70 meter span that provides a direct and continuous path for both pedestrians and cyclists. the project’s proximity to oil storage tanks meant that the bridge had to be specifically designed to prevent access to the flammable substances through carefully placed balustrades and entry routes.
