Built in Munster (Germany) at the end of the 19th century, a railway viaduct connects the cities of Remscheid and Zolingen. It was here that an unusual "railway" cafe-restaurant was opened Restaurant du pont de mungsten, designed by a German architectural studio Pool2.

The current “rusty” aesthetics of the new modern institution corresponds to the architecture of the historical building - a magnificent bridge that paved the way for trains over the river.

The restaurant, located right on the shore, visually corresponds to its context, without violating the landscape with ultra-modern technologies integrated into it or perfect architecture.

Everything is completely organic, as if this building has been standing on the shore of a picturesque relief area since the very old days of the construction of a graceful viaduct. The sounds of the forest and the murmur of the river and the twittering of birds welcomed this outwardly modest, non-competing structure. Only the white base of the building speaks of belonging to our days, expressively, but non-aggressively separating it from the water and the shore, causing associations with the ship.

However, the external impression is misleading. Going inside, visitors are surprised to find themselves in a stylish and comfortable modern setting of a multi-level hospitable institution. Nevertheless, here, in the room, everything is quite natural, without decorations and inappropriate decoration.
Thus, the authors of the project obtained a sincere, but modern result, which, like a viaduct, “throws the way” across the “river” of the twentieth century.
