Rozelor Bridge

Cluj-Napoca, Romania

The Rozelor Bridge project is strategically positioned within Cluj-Napoca, Romania, linking crucial parts of the cityscape. Spanning the Somes River, Rozelor Bridge serves as a vital pedestrian and cycle thoroughfare, connecting the bustling neighborhoods of Grigorescu and Mănăștur while seamlessly integrating with the scenic La Plaja and Rozelor Park.

Designed with minimal disruption to the riverbank, the Bridge boasts a sleek 45.4-meter span supported by only two meticulously placed structures. Constructed from reinforced white concrete in an elegant arch form, it embodies both structural integrity and environmental harmony.

Engineered for strength and grace, Rozelor Bridge’s profile tapers strategically towards the center, creating an illusion of weightlessness. This design feature not only enhances its aesthetic appeal but also fosters a sense of openness and fluidity, with dimensions narrowing from 6.90 meters at the ends to a slender 4.60 meters at the midpoint.

Rozelor Bridge seamlessly blends functionality with architectural elegance, offering residents and visitors alike a picturesque and efficient means of traversing Cluj-Napoca’s urban landscape.
