Køge North Station: a Traffic Hub for Copenhagen

COBE

Architects: COBE
Location: Køge, Denmark

Køge North Station will not only be a traffic hub for the entire Copenhagen region connecting high-speed trains, local trains and the busiest motorway in Denmark, but also a distinctive landmark. The project consists of a 225-meter long pedestrian bridge, a new train station and an associated park and ride facility. The north side of the bridge provides a 180-degrees panoramic view over the landscape and traffic lanes. The inside of the bridge becomes a warm and welcoming area padded with wooden lamellae, while the outside has a more rough expression with perforated steel plates matching the surrounding infrastructural materials.
