‘tullhus bridge, norrkoping’ by erik andersson architectsLED lit at sundown

 

 

 

located in norrköping, the tullhus bridge by swedish erik andersson architects takes pedestrians and cyclists from strömsholmen to the north quay in the city center. being part of the urban planning strategy of the city since the 1950’s, the new construction of the overpass will now link the residential area around strömsholmen to its downtown district.

 

painted in a silver metallic finish, the 72 meter long extension is constructed of steel and has an hourglass shaped body –  tapering towards its midpoint both in plan and section, reflecting against the motala ström. a built-in hot-air system makes it possible to heat the walk-way and keep it clear from snow in the winter. the handrails feature a built-in led lighting system, illuminating the walkway and guiding pedestrians and cyclists over the newly-built bridge.
