The bridge slopes from the Crescent to the Meadow by following the topography of the area and serving as its natural extension. The lattice shell envelops pedestrians as they walk through a tunnel covered with vines and other plant species.

The bridge curves and bends to bring the adjacent bus top and Old Pint Pot closer to the Meadows entrance and acts as the key element of the Middlewood loop link. The existing pergola and bus shelter would be replaced by a single element which directs pedestrians toward the bridge. To make the transition smoother, the architects decided to use the same paving pattern at the intersection and continue it to the mouth of the bridge.
