Bridge Across the Broads

OA have recently submitted an entry to the Acle Bridge Design Competition, located within the Norfolk Broads. The design intent was to create a series of small buildings along an elevated walkway, creating small insertions into the landscape. The design principles focused on:

  • Human Scale: Break down the massing
  • The Edge: Connection to the landscape
  • Resilience: Future-proof for changing conditions
  • Capture the landscape: Framing views
  • Unifying Element: An elevated aspect to the landscape, whilst ensuring that all buildings are accessible during a flooding event
