Hudson Street Parking Garage
Articulated precast panels, mesh screening and terra cotta colored perforated metal panels form the exterior façade. Electric vehicle charging stations and bike racks are located at grade along with a 5,500 S.F.
This 9 level highly articulated parking structure provides parking for 1,200 Hartford Hospital Employees and neighborhood parkers with special passes. The facility is connected on an upper floor to an adjacent hospital building by an overhead pedestrian bridge / walkway system which will eventually be extended to link all the hospital existing and future buildings together.
The exercise facility is adjacent to the main vehicular entry / exit and is clad in a curtain wall system on the front and side elevations. White three dimensional precast panels enliven the exterior façade complimenting the array of metal screening and terra cotta colored perforated metal panels.
