Car Park, Garden and Public Space at Kringlan Shop
Reykjavík, Iceland
A project undertaken with Kristin E. Hrafnsson, artist. Cooperation between architect and artist was at every level and the project in totality is a result of that collaboration. The new car park is on two levels on the site of a surface car park at the south east corner of the mall. In order to mediate between the scale of the mall and the surrounding housing the car park was considered more as landscape than building. The decks are pushed into the ground at an angle against the natural fall of the site enabling the realigned eastern service road to be used both for access and movement from lower to higher levels. A ramp at the south end allows cars to move from the upper to lower level.
