'Schillersteg' in Schwäbisch Gmünd

Timber-Granite Hybrid Bridge For The State Garden Show Baden-Württemberg


In addition to the advantages in construction, the stepped shape of the main beam creates an attractive view from the underlying path. Beside the filligree railing with stainless steel posts and horizontal ropes, granit is used as the decking of a timber bridge for the first time. Integrated into the handrail made from Accoya, LED lights provide illumination of the bridge. The combination of natural materials, such as timber and natural stone, form a meaningful and attractive construction.
