We designed and secured planning consent for a striking facade for Ipswich Borough Council’s new multistorey car park. Inspired by the town’s historic arts and crafts heritage and evocative of the colours of the Suffolk countryside, it has a fully perforated golden façade wrapping around all elevations, creating a memorable place for motorists arriving for the first time. The new car park takes the place of a previous structure with full access to the town centre via an external lift and stairs. It is designed to be a safe space with plenty of light and no hiding places as well as being monitored by CCTV cameras and having staff on site during opening hours to help out.
