Accoya wood has been used to create a unique “floating” bridge in the Dutch city of Bergen op Zoom.
Completed in 2015, the bridge spans Pielekenswater and its design was inspired by the work of Dutch military engineer Menno van Coehoorn, who built the 18th century Revelijn op den Zoom fortress in the same location.
Ro Koster and Ad Kil, of Bergen op Zoom-based RO&AD Architects, who also mastered the famous and award winning Moses Bridge in Halsteren, designed the 80m floating pedestrian bridge to allow access to the 18th century fort’s entrance. Its snake-like path mimics the journey and motion of the boats which originally travelled there.
