The walkway invites inhabitants to step out of the balcony door and take a stroll on a grassy path high up above a regular courtyard, whimsically making use of a traditionally unused space.
The idea for the suspended walkway helps to reinvigorate a sad, existing courtyard, giving it a fantastical edge while providing access to green space without having to go downstairs.
The path flows freely in space offering a moment of relaxation and rest, and a chance to change your perspective. You leave one office, walk freely on a grassy path in the air until you naturally reach the door of the neighboring office, feeling quite different. Instead of form following function, the shape of the structure is designed to encourage fun and exploration.
Mounting and support is achieved using thin wires from the four house walls and the path is just 80cm (less than 32 inches) wide, which helps reduce the shadows thrown by the path onto the neighbours below.
From the bottom it seems even narrower thanks to the curved polished metal underbelly. Reflections from the surroundings in the mirrored surface helps the path to blend in when viewed from underneath.
