Created by Abscis Architecten, this project was split into two parts, with the car park situated over two different buildings. This has created an open-plan feeling to the building design, which juxtaposes with the tight grid of the parking spaces throughout the car park.

Each of the two buildings has been surrounded by white, metal balustrades that feature thousands of small, geometric perforations – bringing another element of contrast to the overall design. Throughout the building, greenery has been used to enhance the design; trees provide shade and cooling at ground area, and on the floors above, different native plants have been used to brighten up the space.
