Parking garage P14 is located directly adjacent to the Stuttgart Airport flight terminals. The new building comprises the ground-level Stuttgart Airport Bus Terminal (SAB) – a facility with 18 bus platforms – and above that, 6 car parking levels connected by a double-helix ramp. The parking levels offer a total of 1,560 parking spaces, including 3.5-meter-wide XL parking spaces on the first parking level, which allow drivers to park their cars with greater ease and to enter and leave them with greater comfort.

The building dimensions result from the functional requirements for parking and for bus traffic, as the SAB serves not only local and regional transport but also many intercity bus lines. As a landmark from afar and due to its immediate proximity to the airport terminals and the state trade fair (Messe Stuttgart), the parking garage’s exterior has special significance. So the new building has been designed to be not only economical, but also technically and visually appealing.

The parking garage’s high architectural standards are plainly evident in its eye-catching facade of anodized and perforated sheet metal panel, which sculpturally surrounds the new building’s rugged steel composite and reinforced concrete construction like a metallic skin: the diagonally textured metal facade, which shimmers in shades of gold and brown, has a sensuous and striking impact that does justice to the distinctiveness of the building and the site.

On the southern side of the uniformly designed metal facade, three concrete stair towers project forward, sculpturally articulating the 210-meter-long building. A footbridge connects the first parking level directly to Terminal 3, enabling users of the parking garage to reach the airport flight terminals without crossing the pedestrian and vehicular flows of the bus terminal.
