Text description provided by the architects. The development of the Gnome parking garage, with 413 parking spaces, is part of the expansion of the city centre of Almere-Buiten. Features of this plan are a lot of green and a clear urban structure. At the architectural level many experiments with innovative materialisation and new constructions have been made, as also in the Gnome parking garage.

The special facade of the garage contains natural elements, like integrated plant containers with specific plants based on the orientation of the facade.

By using a vacuum forming technique – commonly utilized in the automotive industry  – the perforated facade panels show characteristic images of the province of Flevoland like birds, windmills, garden gnomes and bird houses. The perforation of the sheeting supplies natural ventilation in the parking garage and creates an open atmosphere, especially at night.
