Multi-storey car park in Novosibirsk

Even though a car park is a utilitarian part of housing estates, why should it be unsightly? Brusnika is constantly exploring new ideas for its car parks in different cities.  Caption The team has recently completed a three-storey car park in Panorama residential quarter, located in Novosibirsk. Drawing an analogy between parking vehicles ramps and New York Guggenheim Museum space, Brusnika decided that the parking for 279 cars can additionally benefit from a display of art objects and lighting solutions.  Caption Inspired by the quarter location neighbouring the city alpine ski slope, and Novosibirsk proximity to the Altai, mountains were chosen as the key art theme for the new structure.  Caption The salie...

Underground parking garage Brinklaan, Apeldoorn

A beautiful and ambitious plan envisioned a rigorous change: a parking lot besides a busy road was to be transformed into a park, right in the middle of central Apeldoorn. It required the construction of an underground parking garage, a low-traffic area, new bicycle paths and a prominent role for the local brook, The Grift, that after a long time was to be brought above ground again. OKRA landscape architects designed a city park, the Catherina Amalia Park, that adds a green gateway to the inner city and creates a space to meet and mingle for different groups of residents and visitors. Under this city park in Apeldoorn, architectural studio ZJA designed a two-story parking garage with a capacity for 240 cars. During the weekends the garage... More

Bircham Park MSCP

More than just a car park this is a hybrid building that combines two types of apparently contradictory operations: an office and retail building with the utility of a car park building to create a new compact typology.   In S333’s original masterplan for Derriford Hospital’s North-West Quadrant this building forms part of a new entrance and visitor hub. The building delivers services, amenities and secured parking for 600 cars to 11,000 staff, patients and visitors that move through the hospital on a daily basis.   The design brief set out two clear objectives: firstly to remove on-grade, hospital parking currently on the site to release land for further development phases and secondly for the building to improve...

Matabiau Ramblas Car Park

The hereby presented project consists of the construction of a public underground carpark of 400 spaces, built underneath the metro tunnel, at the top section of the allées Jean Jaurès in Toulouse (Occitanie region, France). The allées Jean Jaurès are the Champs Elysées of Toulouse. From 1824 to 1960, called the allées Lafayette at the time, they had a grand central pedestrian fairway flanked on either side by motor vehicle lanes and the tramway lines: it was the toulousain Ramblas. In 1960, the landscaped pedestrian area is cleared to make way for the tarmacked road dedicated to motor vehicles: the allées Jean Jaurès we know today. Currently, the allées are part of the larger... More

Parking de Moulins

The architecture of car parks is almost tainted with negative associations caused by many functional and gloomy buildings. But there are some ways to make the architecture of parking garages interesting and attractive. For example, the car park in the French town of Moulins has recently been renovated and transformed. The facade was enveloped in architectural wire mesh cladding made of EGLA-MONO 4391 by Haver & Boecker. The flat surface on one side of the wire mesh appears to generate patterns across the full plain of the façade created by homogeneous light reflections. The architectural wire mesh cladding not only enhances the appearance of the car park, it also increases it´s functionality. The open area of 52 % provides natural lig... More
