Facade design and screening Print

Design Outcome

Whilst car parking is considered a functional requirement of development, it is also important to explore opportunities to 
celebrate form when designing parking facilities.

The non-habitable nature of a car park allows for more freedom of design than the habitable commercial or residential levels of a building. Creative solutions that take advantage of this freedom can create impressive structures - in some cases they can even verge on art and sculpture.

Creating a feature building out of a car parking structure can both enhance the urban environment and raise the perceived value of the development and its neighbourhood. A landmark structure will attract visitors or users and can raise the profile of the project as a whole.​

Better Design Practice

Articulate the façades of parking structures to provide a recognisable human scale.​

Parking structure design responds to and enhances its surrounding context.

Design provides visual interest during the day and at night​​.
