Valenje Car Park Facade System


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. Despite the fact that Velenje’s centre is a pedestrian zone, a large – possibly too large – portion of the exterior ground surface is designated for stationary traffic, which crucially affects the quality of open-air habitation. With the envisioned increase in the number of users of the city centre, the parking required stands to become an even bigger problem. For a successful revitalisation, solutions need to be found which will increase the number of available parking spaces while reducing the surface area occupied by them at present.


The works of this project were developed in Digital Fabrication, a studio in the Masters of Advanced Architecture at IAAC in 2020
