Pedestrian bridge provides a home for bats by Next Architects

theface_batbridge

The latest addition to an area development in Southern Netherlands is a wooden-concrete pedestrian bridge that not only connects the dwellers of town Monster to the recreational zone, but provides sleeping slots for bats passing by as well. The Poelzone project is led by landscape studio LOLA Architects, who follow ecological and green thinking to establish a line of natural banks, spawn sites, pedestrian routes on an elongated, green-house filled plot.

The venture is all about enhancing the harmonious, undisturbed coexistence of humans and nature, a principle that the ‘batbridge’ also follows. Designed by NEXT Architects, and officially running under the name Vlotwateringbrug, the bridge was built along the flight route of several bat species that are active all year long. Hence, the bridge was designed with the needs of bats in mind: the mass of concrete ensures a pleasant climate, while entrance slots were carved underside. Even the openings feature rough finish for a safe grip.

The pattern of grooves are not only functional for the little creatures but are calming and pleasant for the human eye. Serving as an entrance for those who arrive to Poelzone from Monster, the highest point of the batbridge is also a viewing spot with an unbeatable overall panorama of the green surroundings.
