Multi-Story Veranda Car Park is Airy, Not Scary

Designed by Dutch architect Paul de Ruiter in Rotterdam, Netherlands, the multi-story Veranda Car Park not only aims to solve the parking problems in Veranda strip in Rotterdam, but also aims to improve the image of multi-story car parks with its premium architectural character. The car park accommodates 650 cars and supplies a space for people to shop, drink and eat at street level. 

Architecturally, the Veranda Car Park has an eye-catching exterior and an interior that is congenial and exquisite. In contrast to the general perception of car park designs, instead of cars, people are the center of Paul de Ruiter’s design.

From its glass panoramic lift to its central open area that allows more light and air to penetrate into the car park, its light and white environment prevents the Veranda Car Park from looking like the familiar scary car park scenes in gangster movies.
