Garaż Ursus

Our design task was a “Park and Ride” garage located in the Ursus (Warsaw), next to the railway station. The architectural form is subordinated to the performed function of the object. Chosen materials corresponds with the industrial nature of the area dominated by railway infrastructure. The walls and ceilings are made of architectural concrete. They form a massive and solid frame with which the delicate detail of the openwork finish of the facade is contrasted with the vertical rhythm of dark, graphite bars. They give the obscuring impression and toning insight into the building interior. The dominant color is a raw shade of gray concrete combined with graphite steel details. In contrast to the raw colors of the building, the graphic information system was made in intense and vivid colors.
