Studio di Architettura, parking garaje for Novartis campus in East Hanover (NJ)

Vittorio Magnago Lampugnani, Francesco Porsia, and Georg Krüger – of the Milan-based Studio di Architettura – are the authors of this building for the campus that the Swiss multinational pharmaceutical company Novartis has in East Hanover, New Jersey. The parking garaje can accommodate 1,750 cars on three levels underground and six above ground, plus the roof tier. Organized in a longitudinal band, a fitness center occupies part of the ground floor and mezzanine. The structure is built with precast pieces of white concrete mixed with marble. The six floors above ground are left open, allowing natural ventilation, with metal rails to keep cars from falling off, camouflaged by a bamboo screen that has been given a treatment to make it fireproof. In this way the building’s visual impact on the residential neighborhood is minimized.
