Pillenstein Parking Facility, Fürth

The parking facility of this automobile dealership is located on a wedge-shaped plot next to a commuter rail station at the border of the cities of Nuremberg and Fürth. It offers parking spaces for 100 vehicles on three levels. At the head of the building, which is clad in glossy silver sheet metal, is a two-story semicircular glass cylinder. It is designed as an exhibit and event area for the newest Think Blue electrical models of the VW family. The lighting concept includes several light effects. In addition to LED lines set horizontally into the metal façade, at night an indirect component set into the ground floor creates the feeling that the building is floating on light. The vehicle display area can also be illuminated in a variety of lighting moods.
