Design of a parking garage with wooden façade

Ernsting's family, “Parkpalette” car park, Coesfeld-Lette

The wooden façade of the covered car park appears transparent or closed, and thus revealing or concealing, depending on the angle from which it is seen; it strengthens the monolithic character of the interlocking building but simultaneously allows for natural lighting and ventilation.

This project was discussed in the network series “wieweiterarbeiten – Workspaces of the Future”.
