Passerelle Station Roosendaal

Roosendaal, NL

Optimizing the viability and functionality of the area surrounding the nearby railway station and creating a new dialogue between the surrounding urban areas.

The bridge design is based on structural, functional and visual amenity determinants and a search for a strong character created by means of a simple construction. The proposed bridge provides an answer to this overall context through a balanced combination and integration of shape, structure and construction materials.

A design contest was organized by the municipality of Roosendaal to decide the final artwork to be used at both ends of the bridge. Artist Anna Niederbremer from Roosendaal created the winning design. Both ends of the passerelle are now decorated with a three-dimensional tree pattern sculpture made of steel.
