A true architectural tour de force was to fully deprive the parking ceilings of any visible technical installation. Thanks to their minimalist conception, the parking lots clearly reflect a spatial vision that is plain and reassuring for the users.

The parking lots are served by two independent external ramps ensuring a street-side entry-exit (of the road) and an exit (towards the campus). The blue-tinted and homogenous surface of the ceiling is projected on the ground in blue epoxy spots, reflecting back on the walls. The structure of the concrete pillars is reinforced by a recurrent rhythm of magenta stripes breaking against the ground.
Three 2-meter-diameter oculi are drilled in the walls of the vertical cage, ensuring a direct visual relation between vestibuleand the parking lots.
