Velenje Car Park in Slovenia by ENOTA

Saturday, April 4th, 2015

Article source: ENOTA

Velenje was designed as a garden city and as such, it had a lot of unoccupied ground-level surfaces. With the increase in the number of vehicles, these surfaces began to turn into car parks, which crucially affects the quality of open-air habitation. Like many others in the centre of the town, the car park in front of the community health centre was intended to expand to the surrounding green surfaces due to insufficient capacity. Instead of enlarging the floor area, we chose to partially dig in and cover the car park, doubling the capacity in a simple way. As other projects in the area have shown, the abundance of space in the city made the users reluctant to adopt multi-level parking. Accordingly, the new car park is not designed as a classical parking garage but features a double entrance leading to two car parks laid on top of each other. This makes for highly rational use of the space, as there is no surface lost to circling around the structure, with the building also being naturally ventilated.
