|Start and end year
|Volvo Car Gent
The planned redesign of the cycle path on the Volvo Car Gent site should offer a comfortable solution for VCG employees who come to work by bicycle or moped.
In addition to a new cycle path that connects to the new R4 complex, a new design of a central bicycle and moped shed is integrated. The new covered bicycle parking will accommodate 416 bicycles and 78 mopeds.
The bicycle parking is constructed as a steel structure, mounted on a new polished concrete floor slab. Wooden beams support the continuous polycarbonate light lines.
The outer walls are fitted with aluminum frames with infill metal, mounted side by side with a small joint to form a simple, rhythmic façade with a very slender semi-transparent volume.
