A multi-phased park that continues to welcome, grow and blossom for the surrounding neighbourhoods to enjoy.
A 300 hectare park designed to bring 100,000 new residents together through ecology
Máximapark belongs to everyone
An illusion of paradise:
the layers of green create a miniature ecosystem
and frame the inner gardens: het binnenhof
Máximapark includes a family of 30 bridges, featuring unique detailing and abstract motifs of natural forms.
These different bridge typologies include; The Acorn Bridge, Wooden Japanese Bridges, The Lily Pond Bridge, The Ribbon Bridge, The Daisy Bridge, The pontoon Bridge and several wooden bridges.
The Lily Pond Bridge and the Ribbon Bridge within Máximapark feature a modular system of cast aluminum panels with an abstract daisy ornamentations. A central motif within the park, the daisy pattern also features in the precast edging and is used to demarcate the bicycle and pedestrian pathways.
Both the Lily pond and the Ribbon bridges feature concrete edge elements that form an extension of the concrete retaining straps. These ensure the landing of the bridge connects seamlessly with the environment. For the Wooden Bridges, West 8 partnered with local fabrication company Stichting Bouwloods, a social programme that helps individuals get valuable work experience in the woodworking industry.
