Gold Coast University Hospital Car Parks
GCUH Car Park West is sited north-west of the main hospital complex and is directly opposite the Ward Block West (WBW). Carpark West consists of twin car park structures (1800 spaces), orientated with their long axes running East-West. The design for the car park sets a ‘backdrop’ for the public interface of Ward Block West by creating similar stratification in horizontal planes of ground, main car park texture and floating roof plane. The façades are articulated vertically into proportioned sections to manage the scale of the building. The immediate address of the car park to WBW is controlled by weaving commercial activity zones into the façade. This ensures there is minimal ‘light spill’ from the car park into the view lines of patients, but also controls the address to the internal hospital road. Commercial façades complement the extruded ‘box’ language of the hospital’s clinical support buildings.
