Westarkaden car park, Freiburg

The “Westarkaden” district was developed on the former property of a timber wholesaler in Freiburg. The district was completed with its own car park which dip handed over on time in 2013 and ready for operation after ten months of construction. A total of 725 parking spaces for tenants and visitors to the Westarkaden are available on 18,500 square metres.

The scale-like arrangement of steel sheet cassettes creates a bright and appealing façade design enhanced with profiled glass elements.

A photovoltaic array was installed on the roof. As a result, the car park feeds into the energy supply.
