언덕형태의 지하 자동차 출입구 디자인
Curving windows peep above the ground to bring light into this underground car park in South Holland, which is covered in grassy hillocks to replicate a dune landscape.
They integrated the building into the existing landscape, not only to disguise its bulk and give it an "understated elegance", but to contribute to the area's flood defences.
Situated between the town's shoreline boulevard and the sea, the car park forms part of the Kustwerk Katwijk flood protection project.
"The underground parking is carefully embedded into its natural dune environment so as to respect its surrounding landscape," said architect Richard van den Brule.
