Cambridge Architectural supplied an customer-made open metal mash etched with the town’s name for a footbridge which has been installed at Martinez station in California.
‘We chose Cambridge metal mesh so lettering and design could be etched into the material’, explained Cynthia Easton of Sacramento-based Cynthia Easton Architects. ‘I also wanted the bridge to be as open as possible to offer views of the bay and eliminate dark or hidden areas so everyone felt safe.’
Cambridge worked with Metal-Arch to etch the station name and bay grass inspired designs by sandblasting the stainless steel to create a textured finish.
The mesh was fixed to the prefabricated structure with Cambridge’s Eclipse attachment system. A ‘wave-like’ light tube connects to the metal fabric and accents the bridge at night.
