PROJECT OVERVIEW

Inspired by the rolling hills in Pennsylvania, the eye-catching waving spandrels are the first element to greet you as you drive onto the health campus and the last you pass as you leave. Being in such prime real estate, the owners did not want this to be an ordinary parking garage. The Architects took on the challenge with inspiration from the land around them and created a total precast concrete marvel with 1,235 parking spaces with room to expand as needed.

Key Project Attributes

  • The entrance overhang offers structural support, but also a canopy and brilliance to the design.

  • The waved spandrels allow for more light to come into the garage and eliminate dark areas throughout the space. All at the same time, they are a decorative visual from both inside and out, but they also act as the safety restraints for the parking garage. 

  • The architect prefers designing with a purpose. Precast concrete allowed them to create, “ever-changing shapes of shadows,” all while providing the structural purpose of a parking garage.
