Pedestrian Bridge at Nordic Embassies


Kebony, the sustainable alternative to tropical hardwood, has recently completed their first bridge project ever. The open air pedestrian bridge, which connects the twin buildings of the Nordic Embassies in Berlin, was fully refurbished with new Kebony Clear decking in spring 2016.

Kebony was the natural choice for this project, both as a durable, beautiful material but also as a high quality Scandinavian product. Initially the Kebony decking is a dark brown colour, comparable to that of tropical hardwood. Over time, the timber will adopt a delicate silver-grey patina, perfectly complementing the light panels and glass of the Embassies without compromising the structural properties of the wood.
