Rembrandtpark bridges

Year 1998 - 2001
Typology Fixed bridge
Location Amsterdam, NL
Client Municipality of Amsterdam
Architects This project was designed by Syb van Breda in Royal Haskoning in collaboration with Joris Smits and René Rijkers

Eight bridges, for cyclists and pedestrians, replacing worn out wooden predecessors. They are light and elegant, a modern interpretation of the typical 19th century park bridge. The rough weathering steel deck is embraced by refined glazed balustrades. The design is a good example of intelligent sustainability: all materials used are 100% recyclable. Re-use of of the existing foundation resulted in minimum impact during construction.
