Split-storey car park on a sloping site, serving an adjacent shopping centre

Eight storeys, each with a capacity of fifty cars, are staggered to address a slope in the land from west to east.

A simple ramp provides internal vehicular circulation, and space in plan for turning circles enables ease of access into parking bays.

Precast concrete cladding units with steel and neoprene fixtures enclose each of the parking decks.

Pedestrian access is via a staircase on the south face.
