Sika Flooring Solution Supports the Unique Architectural Concept in Lammermarkt Parking Garage

In the historic centre of Leiden, Netherlands, Lammermarkt Parking Garage has now become one of the favorite spots of the visitors, due to its unique and pleasant parking experience.

Project Description

The historic center of Leiden has many museums, shops, theaters and catering establishments. It is a pedestrian zone without car traffic. The project Lammermarkt Parking Garage is one of the two carparks which are located within walking distance of the historic center and provide parking space for the visitors. This new underground parking has 525 spacious parking spaces and eight charging stations for electric cars. Every floor has a certain number of disabled parking spaces.

Project Requirements

In collaboration with the Dura Vermeer - BESIX combination, JHK Architects created the design for the parking garage under the Lammermarkt. The design is an architectural masterpiece under the ground and combined the functionality and the mode of construction in an elegant way, with respect to the monumental city center surrounding. The cylindrical form of the garage is not only the basis for a user-friendly parking garage, the compactness of the volume also minimizes interference with the monumental buildings surrounding it. To realize the visual effect of the designed carpark space, high quality carpark flooring and wall systems with tailored color shades are required.

With clear orientation, spacious parking spaces and easily found stairs and lifts, the Lammermarkt  Parking Garage provides a delightful parking experience. The traffic is well planned with signs, arrows, icons and other indicators of directions by the architect to ensure the safety. The orange back wall on the parking levels and the orange floor edging in the central void reinforce the spatial character of the parking garage and give the interior depth and color. The Sikafloor® MultiDur EB-14 AT park deck system was specified and applied by VLAQ Infra en Industrie B.V. together with the Sika flooring team.

Recently, the ESPA Gold Award was awarded to this carpark.
