The parking house in Ørestad, Copenhagen, won first prize in a competition in 2008. It’s located at the busy corner of Edvard Thomsensvej, where its facades enclose very different types of urban spaces and courtyards.
The architectural idea is that the building, with its light facades of a diffuse character, is well suited to the varied context it’s situated in with different kinds of developments and urban spaces surrounding it. A main idea is that the building in its entirety should not by itself signal ‘car park’, but that the signage on street level alone communicates the identity of the building to motorists.
