CAR PARK OF THE INTERCOMMUNAL HOSPITAL Frejus (France) - 2016
Contexte & enjeux
Integrating a storage facility for 348 vehicles to recompose and enhance a sensitive site: this is a typically architectural, urban and environmental challenge.
Set on the corolla of a floor of generously planted vegetation, the vehicle silo brings together the eclectic architecture of the surrounding area. Its own architectural style, made up of a succession of vertical sequences, links tangential views; two-coloured slats and louvres -recto/verso-propose a light and kinetic expression, which evokes a musical score. To the south and west, the smoother aspect echoes the hospital’s façade.
The motorist is a pedestrian. Beyond the urban impact, the comfort of users is addressed by the visual and solar protection, by the coloured atmosphere used for the legibility and safety of the flows. The scale of the planting contributes to comfort.
The half-level design exploits the topography of the plot; it sets the tone for eco-design: saving on cut and fill, then compactness and mixed structure to save materials. The access ramps set back from the facades, beyond the planted strip, reduce the surrounding noise pollution.
Shared by users and staff of the CHI, the park is also intended for the inhabitants of the hospital district. Isn’t user-friendly parking an element of urban comfort ?
