Open-Air Parking in Krylatskoe


The building of an above-ground open-air six-level parking lot was designed for the territory of the Krylatskie Kholmy business park in Moscow. The site allotted for the construction of the parking lot is located in the south-east part of the business park extended along the Moskvoretskiy Park border and separated from Krylatskaya Street with the office buildings. This close proximity to the natural complex has considerably defined the architectural and composition solution – the building was designed as a transition element from regular and well-arranged urban architecture to the natural park environment. The outer walls of the parking lot were replaced with a curtain wall structure comprised of smoothly curved vertical wooden fins. The resulting rounded ends granted the parking more expressive “natural” plastics, and provided for additional parking stalls. Another equally important design objective was to consider a transformer substation building, already present at the site, which could not be moved. The project authors cut the building into two sections communicated with metal steel truss bridges used by the vehicles to drive from one parking section to the other. The space division into two sections made it less massive though lighter, while the resulting opening helped maintain views over Moskvoretskiy Park to be enjoyed by the business park employees.
