Charles Street Car Park

The Charles Street car park acts as a large lantern at an urban scale. It contains 520 parking spaces over ten floors with retail space at ground level.

The abstract and animated surface of its facade is composed of identical angled panels that are rotated randomly in four orientations. Each panel is made up of a single folded sheet of aluminium, painted green on the inside. Diurnal patterns of light and shade bring this functional building to life both internally and externally.
