The architect Thomas Nies decided on grey and yellow clinker bricks in the format 200 x 100 x 52 mm, which are visually oriented to the nature of the surroundings. On the one hand, the warm sandy tones are taken up again, while on the other hand the grey creates an interesting contrast.
In addition to the material properties of the paving clinkers, the section with the natural stone slabs is also convincing: This is fastened to building piles, so to speak “hovering” over the dune. “In the event that this is destroyed as a flood protection structure, the entire natural stone slab promenade can be dismantled,” Niessen describes the advantages. “Flood protection is thus guaranteed because the paved area is not removed when the dunes are destroyed, but remains standing.”
