Køge Nord Station crosses two rail lines and eight motorway lanes and was created by Cobe and Dissing+Weitling for a new high-speed train line from Copenhagen.

The two studios designed the railway station as a snake-like footbridge that connects two important train lines – a high-speed rail line and a suburban rail line – and runs above Denmark’s busiest motorway.

It has been shortlisted for the Dezeen Awards 2020 in the infrastructure project category.

柯格北站(KøgeNord Station)跨越兩條鐵路線和八條高速公路車道,由科比(Cobe)和Dissing + Weitling創建,用於哥本哈根的一條新的高速鐵路線。



Køge Nord Station, which is located in a new city district in Køge, Denmark, was required to be in direct connection with a park-and-ride facility to help create more sustainable travel routes.

This enables commuters to park their cars and take the high-speed train to Copenhagen, which is 35 kilometres away.

“Being visible to more than 100,000 motorists and passengers every day, the station should have iconic qualities, simple, yet distinctive, and blend well into the landscape,” Steen Trojaborg, managing director at Dissing+Weitling, told Dezeen.



Dissing + Weitling董事總經理Steen Trojaborg告訴Dezeen:“每天要有100,000多名駕車者和乘客看到,這個車站應該具有標誌性的質樸,簡單而又與眾不同的特徵,並與景觀完美融合。”

“We approached the brief by deciding to aim for a design that would create connectivity between the many different functions of the station area in an effortless manner, and by focusing on creating a pleasant and attractive environment for the passengers using the station,” he added.

“The goal was to celebrate public infrastructure – and the joy of travel – by pursuing the iconic qualities of the station sought after in the brief.”

他補充說:“我們採用了簡短的方法,即決定設計一種可以輕鬆地在車站區域的許多不同功能之間建立連通性的設計,並著重於為使用車站的乘客創造一個令人愉悅和有吸引力的環境。” 。


The brief called for a covered, pedestrian bridge and the studios chose to design an elliptical cross-section in order to give the 225-metres-long footbridge a simple, unifying expression.

It is accessible by five elevators and stairs that protrude from the softly bent, aluminium-clad cylinder.

“The station is more often than not perceived at motorway speed, which calls for a restrained outer geometry and limited use of different materials, in this case being aluminium cladding,” Cobe founder Dan Stubbergaard told Dezeen.



Cobe創始人Dan Stubbergaard告訴Dezeen說:“在高速公路上,人們常常看不到車站,這需要約束外部幾何形狀,並限制使用不同的材料,在這種情況下是鋁質覆層。”

Its soft s-shape was based on the station’s surroundings, as the aim was to connect a view to the water at Køge Bay to the east and a view over the woods to the west.

“The forecourts and park-and-ride-facility are designed to preserve these views even when future urban development is to take place,” Trojaborg said.

Large panoramic windows frame the views at either end of the bridge, while the facades serve as a sunshade.

Cobe and Dissing+Weitling chose durable industrial materials for the footbridge, which is made from concrete and aluminium with structural steel elements.




Cobe和Dissing + Weitling為行人天橋選擇了耐用的工業材料,該材料由混凝土和鋁製成,並帶有結構鋼元素。

“On the inside, we chose oakwood cladding to introduce a softer, warmer, more pleasant feeling, as to wrap and protect people walking across two rail lines and eight lanes of motorway,” Trojaborg said.

“The architecture stimulates the good travel experience by both open prospects and intimacy, movement and zones for taking a break.”

Both Cobe and Dissing+Weitling have worked on infrastructure projects before Køge Nord Station.

“In our view, infrastructure is public space,” Stubbergaard said.



Cobe和Dissing + Weitling都在KøgeNord站之前從事基礎設施項目。


“Public space belongs to all of us, it is where we meet and interact, and it is an important part of what tie communities together and create coherence between us as individuals,” he added.

“When treated with attention and respect, and from a people-centric viewpoint, designing public infrastructure and the public spaces in connection with it can have a great impact on many people’s lives. We aim to create extraordinary everyday spaces.”

An average of 8,000 people are expected to use the station every day.

Other projects shortlisted for the Dezeen Awards 2020 in the infrastructure category include the Technion Entrance Gate, a bridge designed to be a new public platform, and the Bunhill 2 Energy Centre that uses heat from the London Underground to warm nearby homes.
