This project consists of constructing a new 550-space carpark in Ledeberg, Belgium. Its location and boomerang shape will free up space that will be turned into green areas. There will be only above-ground levels. The building will create a barrier against traffic noise pollution from motorway B401, for the benefit of the whole neighbourhood.

The floors will be slightly inclined on the southern side and flat on the northern one. This difference in levels will distinguish entering and exiting lanes. The parking spots are arranged at an angle for an optimal use of space.

The reinforced concrete structure will support these architectural and final-use objectives effectively. On account of the limited gross height (2.75 m) in the pedestrian area, a Y-shape was chosen for the pillars and beams. There is only one central pillar for every three-spot parking unit (7.32 m), which means that the driving lanes and pedestrian areas will be free of pillars.
