OS 66.1 / Stuttgart, Germany / Parklift 461
“As you can see, you can’t see anything”
In an urban densification project, the WÖHR car parking system Parklift 461 provides a clever and surprisingly discreet parking solution.
Architects: g2o Architekten, Stuttgart
Car parking system: WÖHR Parklift 461-2.0 D
Stunning statement for urban living and working
The object which has been impressively redesigned in 2019 demonstrates how to optimally use residential, work and parking areas in city locations. An inconspicuous masonry building with a gable roof was transformed into a crystalline monolith with roof terrace and open staircase, contemporary energy concept and urban living ambience.
Doubling parking space without any apparent change
Needless to say, the solution to the parking space problem was also part of the prize-worthy architectural concept. A hydraulically operated parking lift of the model was used in the yard next to the building. With this solution, two vehicles can be lowered underground. The cover platform also provides two parking spaces, so that there is room for four vehicles in an area of only two parking spaces. The highlight of the design: The cover platform is barely recognisable as such when lowered, as it has the same covering as the rest of the courtyard.
Also suitable for SUVs and vans
With a vertical platform distance of 2.05 metres, the lower level is also suitable for vans or SUVs. The width of the platform, which is 4.80 m is also sufficient for family-friendly cars
Stephan Obermaier, Managing Director at g2o, is happy to have found a renowned partner for the implementation in WÖHR, also for personal reasons: “Our children enjoy the free space gained and the cars are located well protected underground.” For the teamwork he also only has words of praise: “The product of WÖHR is the reference on the market. The collaboration was highly professional and cooperative.”
