20.052 | Bridges Waterfront Hoorn

In 2024, three new bridges will enable people to reach the new Hoorn city beach from the historic Westfriese Omringdijk.
The classical cross-section of a dyke was taken as a starting point. This is reflected in the bridge’s tub shape. This inverted dyke pays homage to the monumental Westfriese Omringdijk. The bridge is designed as a dune passage, with a sand bed overgrown with grass on either side of the path or the road. The fencing on the bridge, made of wooden posts and steel wire, and the wooden decking of the pavement are reminiscent of the experience of the beach. The user goes, as it were, through a narrow hollow dune to the urban beach.
