Palm Beach County Convention Center Parking Garage
West Palm Beach, Florida
Influenced by suggestions from neighborhood residents, the Neo Mediterranean urban design of this nine-level, 2,648-stall parking structure was inspired by the multi-hued sand and rippling surf of its seaside community. The roof line and north face mimic ocean waves and the color of prefinished aluminum sunshade louvers allude to the color of sand under receding waves on the beach. The dual-purpose sunshades also provide a method of reflecting heat in this open parking structure. A covered pedestrian walkway between the parking structure and convention center add architectural interest, shade, and protection from weather.
Two entry/exit routes are provided with a digital monument sign at the north entryway to relay important information to patrons. Sustainable features include bicycle racks on the north wall of the basement level, and car chargers for electric vehicles on the north face of the main level.
