Anonyme : Parking Vaisseau Mère

Following the cancellation of the surface parking lot of the Tour Bois le Prêtre in Paris (17e), which is destined to become a green space, the Parisian agency Anonymous was chosen to design an underground substitution of 3 000 square meters Which can accommodate more than 120 vehicles under the name of Mother Ships.

The peculiarity of the project lies in its small size, to which the project managers had to adapt. Anonyme then decided to share circulations and access ramps, which form a single gently sloping track around which the three levels are helically unfolding.

To give a little more relief to the realization, the architects play with the concrete structure of the parking that they decline in several textures: brute, matt and brilliant. The succession of central columns thus brings force and rhythm to the curved volume, punctually marked with scarlet flat surfaces on the ground and the walls, a color that is also found in monochrome application in the corridors, enabling users to identify more outputs easily.

To combat the sometimes frightening atmosphere that can be conveyed by such a place, the studio uses imposing lighting devices and clear surfaces to avoid any dark corner. Signage also helps to reinforce this aspect thanks to its rounded shapes, softer than those usually chosen.

Thus, the Wood Tower the Priest will soon be embellished with a warm garden, in place of the old car park, it will be possible to visit by parking his car just below, in a safe place and agreeable.
