The additively organised operational procedures of Switzerland’s largest garage operation are reflected in the building’s elongated structure. It seamlessly integrates itself into the broader context of the resident \”Empa – Materials Science and Technology\” research institute and its large-scale structures – a first step towards the further densification of the Giessen site. In addition, the new building serves as a noise barrier for residential buildings on the southern side against the busy Überlandstrasse.
Due to the limited amount of space on the plot, the two-storey entrance hall is exclusively used for customer contact. All the storage areas and workshops are located on the upper floors, which form an oversized, entrance area-wide canopy.
In contrast to the very open ground floor, a semi-permeable metal structure spans the multiple usage areas on the upper floors, optically combining them into a single unit.
