Parking and More in Basel

Mixed Development in Switzerland – design by HHF Architecture

28 Jan 2015

Parking and More in Basel

Location: Basel, Switzerland

Design: HHF Architecture

The project called Parking & More is a public facility and mixed use structure for parking and a variety of public and private programs. The new concrete structure will be placed over the existing standard steel parking lot. The current building will be renovated and fully integrated into a new and much larger parking.

Parking And More

The goal is to create intense and multilayered infrastructure, which works as an urban hinge, connecting and regulating different type of mobility flows, both from north to south and east to west. The fully open structure has ceiling heights which are slightly above standard heights for parking to accommodate other permanent and temporary built-in programs.

Parking And More

A series of small scale shops, bars and restaurants are located on the ground floor, creating a vibrant and lively street and a partially covered urban plaza with different sport facilities and temporary pop-up stores. Beside parking there is a motel and a sports club integrated on the upper floors. The roof top is used for urban farming and provides a public garden with a restaurant, bars and an event hall overlooking the city.

Parking And More

All internal circulation is organized with two centrally located spiral ramps leading up to the roof. They allow for a direct access with cars and bikes to all floors including the roof.

An additional sideway for pedestrians, located on the inside of a ramp leads to the public viewing platform, offering a great view over the fast developing area of the Dreispitz quarter.
