BUILDING FOR BOUWKUNDE
The open air parking for vehicles and bicycles is located below the building to save plot size, to serve as a foundation and to create shading.
The excavation of the parking has natural edges that allows a variety of daylight.
The design provides a ‘closed ground assessment’: the outdoor parking at -1 level is excavated and its soil is shaped into lazy hills in the surrounding landscape.
This landscaping fits the Mecanoo masterplan for the Mekelweg zone.
