this bicycle parking garage in the netherlands offers a museum-like experience

one of the largest bicycle parking garages in the netherlands has been built in the hague. constructed beneath the koningin julianaplein, right in front of the city’s main railway station, the project has been designed as a museum-like setting with white ceilings, smart directional markings, spacious aisles, and back-lit glass walls. the project provides space for approximately 8,000 bicycles and rental bikes within a safe and secure environment.

completed by silo, a studio that combines branding, digital, and spatial design, and studio marsman, the project serves as an essential link in the hague’s urban mobility network. ‘the integrated application of light and spatial identity makes the facility appear more spacious,’ explains rene toneman, creative director at silo. ‘moreover, the visual interventions supports the intuitive orientation, making it easier to find back your bike at the end of the day.’

a key feature of the design is the escher-inspired light wall that encloses the parking facility. the past, present, and future architecture of the hague forms the basis for one continuous image that comprises façade elements of the city’s buildings. as cyclists move past the wall, they experience the city’s skyline in one smooth movement. the exits of the parking garage will be integrated with the above ground development, which includes residential towers, commercial spaces, and a public square.
