OutletCity Metzingen is the most successful factory outlet in Europe and annually attracts around 4 million visitors from 185 countries. The P3 shopping car park with 680 parking spaces was built in a central city location to channel the flow of visitors.

P3 OutletCity car park in Metzingen

The structure of the two-aisled parking garage opens up to a green inner courtyard. The facade made of vertical wooden slats looks calm and stylish.

In some areas, invisible from the outside, behind the airy wooden slats there is a soundproof facade specially developed for this project. This consists of a combination of noise protection elements and sheet steel.

The generous main staircase acts as a representative design element and flows into the integrated spacious Welcome Center on the ground floor. Here customers will find everything they need to start a relaxed shopping experience, such as beverage vending machine machine, cell phone charging stations and seating.
