fietsenpakhuis is a parking garage I’d live in

In Zaanstad, Netherlands there was a parking problem on the main retail strip. A bicycle parking problem.

Built to accommodate 700 bicycles, in a city with only 145,000 residents, fietsenpakhuis reflects the “Zaanse” industrial architecture style of the city and supports the residents and visitors who bike daily in the area.

The floor is paved with bricks connecting it visually to the street outside and in the large front windows stored bicycles and bicycle repair stations will be visible. The space also includes bicycle rental, storage lockers and public washrooms.
