Dalmeden 11 bridges photo 1

Municipality Hengelo


In Dalmeden, the new residential area on the north side of Hengelo, the municipality intends to place 11 bridges during the coming years. Residents of Dalmeden have contributed to the design of the handrails of the bridges. The focus point for the design was the landscape of the region Twente in the east of the Netherlands. In consultation with the residents, Makan has designed 11 stories which are reflected in the railing of the bridges. The stories are about the life of the region Twente through the years. Because not all residents' ideas could be realized on the bridges, themes were taken from all ideas and incorporated in the railings. In June 2018, the first three bridges were put in place.
