Laurent Saint-Val has designed a pedestrian bridge which includes a Café-restaurant, one of the few wood constructions to be found in Amsterdam nowadays, since he believes in its great aesthetic, and in the fact that wood is very ecological.
An inhabitable bridge and a cultural space at the same time found in the centre of Amsterdam. It is a unique combination of function and materials, including wood as the dominant material, aluminum, steel and different kinds of glass.
The bridge brings out a contemporary European feel, which makes it quite heartwarming to the people that visit it. Its design is considered to be a unique mix of different periods of time, while its multifunctional character makes it an area of correspondence between different people from all over the world.
