The new staff car park of the Cliniques Universities Saint-Luc hospital in Brussels is getting attention for its beautiful structure. The building, housing 985 parking spaces, has a wooden facade with a fluid undulating design to create a unique look. As reported by Web Urbanist, the architects responsible for the project were challenged to develop an impacting building that would serve as a welcoming point of the hospital without disregarding the car park’s functional purpose.
The design incorporates natural canyons to allow daylight and air to reach the lowest levels, resulting in a sinuous look. In addition, the architects included a functional green area on the roof which results in a pleasant view to look at from the adjacent hospital building.

Considering staff parking charges are quite low, it is interesting to see that investments of this nature are being funded regardless of the long pay back period.
