Trumpf Multistory Parking Lot

A new multistory parking lot is currently being built at the site of an old parking lot on Trumpf’s Campus in Ditzingen. The 66 x 82 m building has 11 parking levels organized in a split-level system, which offers parking for 950 cars and 200 bicycles, as well as an underground changing area for arriving cyclists and motorcyclists. Initially, 100 parking spaces will be equipped with charging stations for electric cars. 

The building is divided into two parts, set off against each other in position and height. The offset allows a 60-year-old walnut tree to be preserved. The parking lot was built quickly and efficiently using a system construction method made of steel and reinforced concrete elements. 

The outer appearance is characterized by axially laser-cut façade fins, cut out of a metal tube on Trumpf machines in two variants - one on the left and one on the right - and mounted as a light curtain wal. The total of 3,600 laser-cut pieces are offset horizontally, creating the impression of a moving, textile-like outer shell.
