Herlev Hospital is having a new addition and is growing in size. With an expanding and a growing demand to the larger hospital, a new parking house to accommodate this increased traffic. The parking house will have 11 staggered floors of parking, divided into two buildings of 5 and 6 floors. It will be able to house 524 cars.
The facade of the building will be created in a dark bronze-colored anodized metal, which will complement the new hospital buildings in the site. The metal facade will be bent into waved across the building and designed to be asymmetrical in height and staggered in relation to each other. This will create a facade that will shift as you move around the building, and during the course of a day. To integrate the new green recreational areas from the hospital project, the parking house will have plants growing up the facade. The living facade will create an organic transition from the green surrounding nature, to the parking house and built areas of the hospital. It will give a softer expression to the building, that will live and move just like its surroundings.
