The bridge is located just north of the town Sand on the west coast of Norway. It is the result of extensive design process together with Czech architect Ivan Kroupa, where the inhabitants of Sand were given the opportunity to vote on some of the initial ideas.
The bridge, which connects the town to a vast wooden landscape, consists of two steel lattice beams in corten steel clad with steel sheets, with a small concrete pavilion on the south side of the river. The structure provides an enclosed acoustic space above the middle of the river with a view through a steel grate directly down to roaring forces of the water.
