BETWEEN A ROCK AND A HISTORIC PLACE...

Nestled among several civic buildings, this parking facility replaced a congested surface lot and fills what was a significant void in an otherwise dense streetscape.  Conceived as a contrast to its monolithic neighbors, it expresses its structure and utilitarian nature with a palette of raw materials such as cast-in-place concrete and galvanized steel.  A precedent of vines growing on a neighboring historic building was inspiration for developing mesh panels that act as a grow structure and provide layered screening of parked vehicles.  Long, horizontal planters at street level provide a visual base and human scale to the structure, enhancing the pedestrian experience with color and texture.  The entry canopy is an extension of the floor structure; its rain water run-off irrigates the planters.  Mesh ribbons bend up at the vehicular entry and out toward the street becoming a blade sign.  Consistent with its functional nature, the facility was named after its address.
