The timber girder bridge for the new residential area Stripheldenbuurt in Almere enables pedestrians and cyclists to cross the local canal. The glulam girders were produced with a distinct curve so that occasionally passing boats can pass the bridge. The curved shape is in contrast to the rather straight forms of the residential areas which creates a positive picture. The steel parapet has a dark coating and is very transparent in the side view. A mastic asphalt coating protects the timber construction from weathering.
