multi-storey car park
| parking facilities for marina
[micheal fountain architects]
The car park services the clients of the marina and the associated functions. It spans a heavily dilapidated viaduct with an external bracing super structure and three massive beams. The combination of steel mesh screen and the horizontal beams on the façade provides free air flow while being both people barrier and car barrier. The design challenge of the car park was to integrate the scale of cars with the rest of the boat storage facility to which it was connected. The steel mesh façade element is used to bridge this scale incompatibility and provide unity between the different buildings.
