HHF Architects Transform Existing Parking Structure into Public Destination

Swiss firm HHF Architects have released images and drawings for “Parking & More,” a mixed-use structure and public facility for Basel’s Dreispitz quarter.

An addition to an existing steel parking complex, “Parking & More” combines a parking lot with eateries, sport facilities, and shops, “creating a vibrant and lively street and a partially covered urban plaza.” The project is adjacent to BIG’s Transitlager ad Herzog & de Meuron’s 312 Helsinki Dreispitz, forming a triumvirate of new developments that reflect the area’s rapid rates of densification and urbanisation. Read more about “Parking & More” and view selected images after the break.

A group of five high-profile jurors, lead by Louisa Hutton of Berlin-based Sauerbruch Hutton, have issued a statement through the (SIA) denying any support of Morphosis’ appointment to design the 7132 Hotel in Vals, Switzerland. According to reports, the jury had “significant question marks” regarding the chosen design, ultimately leading to the high-profile competition’s termination when the jury failed to recommend a winner. This seems to be a result of the client and jury’s inability to find common ground.
