Juurlink [+] Geluk

Park over Bos

The project

In order to restore the infrastructure beween Breda and the village of Prinsenbeek, Park Over-Bos was built across the motorway and rail link. The actual link consists of two wide ‘park ducts’ which, viewed from the motorway, constitute an eyecatching landmark. The park features several special places. All these objects are simple in style and made primarily of wood and steel. The way Juurlink [+] Geluk has brought this extremely complicated task to a happy conclusion is quite a remarkable feat.

Committee

A cluster of infrastructure and a park are combined in a topography. The contrast between park and concrete/asphalt of the motorway and the TGV (high-speed train) provides a pleasant tension. The park has many differences in height and a network of cycle and footpaths. Distinctive features are the specially designed furniture, fishing deck, split bridge, and the lighting plan.
