Architectural Mesh for enclosure

CODINA as Manufacturers

This car park is located in the new area under development known as Nice Méridia in Nice (France). It is a highly attractive neighbourhood for public and private companies alike that are devoted to research, development and training in sustainability and healthcare. Its growth makes the creation of infastructures that will allow for electric vehicles to be charged or bike parking necessary.

Caption

The 6-storey building designed by Agence VBI has the capacity for 499 vehicles, amongst which are electric cars, and a 196-m2 area intended for bikes. On the roof are photovoltaic panels that allow the building to manage its own energy.

Caption

The functionality of the car park contrasts with the design of the southern wave-shaped façade, which can play with different light effects throughout the day and night whilst acting as a camouflage for the vehicles. This enclosure was created with a stainless steel metal mesh attached to a second structure. The model chosen was the EIFFEL 4050 metal mesh with the T-60 attachment system. The other façades are also finished with Codina’s solution, but are straight instead.

This project was carried out in collaboration with Maille Metal Design.
