Year

2008-09

The 4½ storey car park completes the urban block structure, with a façade designed to act as a harmonic modern counterpart to the existing buildings.

The layout is adapted to respect the outdoor spaces of the surrounding housing, and to accommodate two important trees on the site.

A transparent appearance with large glazed openings contributes to the liveliness of the streetscape, by allowing light and glimpses of activity to be seen. The facades of the pre-fabricated concrete structure are composed of vertical folded panels of perforated aluminium, with coloured graphics behind, and projecting bay-windows to create variations in the elevation.
