at the gateway of Delft
East of the inner city of Delft an underground parking facility has been realized: the ‘Marktgarage’. The garage provides room for 359 cars and is intended for visitors of the centre and residents of the new housing block. On top of the garage, adjacent to the Willem Naghelstraat, a housing block has been built.
The profile of the Willem Naghelstraat is fitted with access roads and exits for the garage for which purpose the existing road had to be widened. For the public layout of the area a design has been made with inner-city style whereby space is kept available for new green zones and attention has been given to the difference in character between the residential streets present and the wider Willem Naghelstraat.
The parking garage consists of a central access-exit route in the shape of a spiral ramps and it has two parking decks with an open and surveyable structure with a clear routing and the smallest possible number of columns. The high level of quality is demonstrated by the spacious parking lots, the extra headroom, the many provisions and the particular application of colour. In addition to the main entrance with two elevators and a spacious staircase, the garage is provided with two pedestrian emergency staircases.
On top of the garage, fifteen spacious patio one-family houses are built and three special houses at the corners. Eleven standard houses have entries on both streets and a ground floor with a larger headroom. The first floor has a patio that introduces extra light in the deep houses, and also the bay window with a view of the tower of the Nieuwe Kerk. The second floor provides the inhabitants with a roof terrace. The houses come with their own double parking lot in the garage. The houses are environmentally friendly because of the high degree of insulation, the energy saving installations and the application of durable materials.
