Paris firm Jacques Ferrier Architectures completed this amazing multi- storey car park, that is located in Soissons, France.
Called Lez Yeux Verts, this car park can house 600 cars and forms part of a development of former barracks into a business park. The building has a concrete structure, galvanised-steel framework, and is clad in vertical spruce timbers that vary in angle and spacing to create a ripple effect.
The timber facade is punctuated by eye-shaped openings that afford views over the town, and behind which new planting will eventually grow to form hanging gardens. More information, click here
