Smart Design Studio - Sydney Architects

GSPS

The Goulburn Street Parking Station (GSPS) occupies a significant corner site of a major downtown Sydney intersection. In response to the City’s brief to reconfigure the station, with a view to enhancing user experience of the structure and transforming the image of the building, we proposed a significant and substantial ‘greening’ of the façade and immediate interiors via our Vertical Farming System. This system of rotary conveyor belt planting is a viable, productive – rather than a merely ornamental – planting of the rather imposing structure. Strong graphics, integrated lighting and improved navigability all contribute to an enhanced user experience. Designed 2011.
