Deutsche Bank Bridge

A private bridge joining two office buildings at fifth floor level above a public street in the City of London. The bridge is designed to create a special moment for people using the bridge and a memorable image for the bank.

The refined structure is barely visible, supporting transverse stainless steel fin frames which shade the fully glazed walls and roof. The bridge appears almost transparent and unsupported against the sky while giving long views over the City for people crossing over.
