Paul de Ruiter 事务所受鹿特丹城市发展局与鹿特丹城市监管局邀请，为鹿特丹费耶诺德球场附近的Veranda街区设计一个高品质的多层停车建筑。建筑将容纳650个停车位，以解决周边日益严峻的停车问题，同时需要与Rudy Uytenhaak事务所设计的城市规划方案相契合。建筑的临街界面将提供商业和餐饮服务，以激活街道空间。
Paul de Ruiter 事务所借此机会彻底颠覆了人们对多层停车建筑的刻板印象。建筑师考虑了使用者的心理需求，而不只是关注他们所驾驶的车辆。这座新落成的停车场建筑不仅外表别具一格，内部空间也相当舒适怡人。
To solve the parking problems in the Veranda strip close to the Feyenoord stadium in Rotterdam, Paul de Ruiter was commissioned, by the City of Rotterdam Development Corporation (OBR) and Rotterdam City Supervision (STZ), to design a multi-storey car park with a high-quality architectonic character that would fit in with the urban planning vision of architect Rudy Uytenhaak. The car park was to accommodate 650 cars, as well as providing space for shops and places to eat and drink in the section of the building at street level.
Paul de Ruiter took the opportunity of this commission to improve the image of multi-storey car parks. He designed a building that has not only an exterior that is attractive to look at, but an interior that is a pleasant place to be in. Instead of the cars, people are the central issue of the design.
多层停车建筑 Multi-story parking
As the dimensions of the building plot and the height of the building were specified stringently in the zoning plan, the design team that was especially put together by Paul de Ruiter for this project, decided to locate a large proportion of the parking spaces underground. The Veranda car park is now organized around a void of nine levels: four parking levels underground and four parking levels above ground. The ground floor accommodates shops and places to eat and drink.
The floor plan of the car park building is trapezium-shaped with rounded corners and the superstructure is offset at an angle to the substructure. As a result, a sense of continuous circling movement is generated upwards and downwards around the large open area in the middle of the building.

简洁与实用Simplicity and efficiency
The layout of the car park is both simple and efficient. From sloping runways in the middle of the trapezium-shaped floor plan, cars move in a spiral upwards or downwards around the centre. The car parking space is arranged both along the outer walls and beside the central open area and the sloping runway. Alongside the slow, straight ascending or descending route that you naturally follow when looking for a parking space, there is also a fast circular route for exiting from the four parking levels above ground. The parking levels are accessible to pedestrians via a glass panoramic lift that ascends from the void in the central open area.

The primary function of the central open area, measuring 16 x 22 metres, is to allow more light and air to penetrate into the car park, to improve the ambience of the underground levels and ensure that these are not inferior to the levels above ground. The permeation of light is reinforced by the white ceilings, floors, walls and the pillars of the void and the light artwork that is incorporated into it. Even underground, visitors can find their bearings, because they can see the sky and retain a link with the outer world. The siting of circular routes running upwards and downwards around the central open area means that visitors can always see where the cars and people are.
In four exhaust tubes the back pressure fans are positioned, which ensure that the polluted air from cars is extracted from the building. If a fire breaks out, the machines reverse and blow large quantities of air to level -4 of the car park, so that the fire is forced out, so to speak, through the void.
为了塑造活跃的空间氛围并将建筑师的设计意图完整地传达给使用者，建筑立面的细节和材料选择都经过了仔细的推敲。Veranda多层停车场的立面采用横向放置铝板，中间嵌有玻璃镜面作为分隔。Paul de Ruiter 自己设计了多孔折叠铝板，并经过大量的实验确定材料方案，使立面同时具备可塑性和通透性。同样，由玻璃和铝板制成的铝合金型材也是出自建筑师之手，针对该建筑定制的。阳光穿过立面弥漫在空中，站在室内隐隐约约的可以看到周围的环境。夜晚，灯光通过小孔散射出去，建筑如同一个散发着光芒的大灯笼。
In order to create the dynamic and at the same time clear image that Paul de Ruiter had in mind – both from the inside and the outside – great attention was paid to the details and materials of the façade design. The façade of the Veranda multi-storey car park is composed of horizontal strips of aluminium, alternated with small strips of mirror glass. To combine plasticity and transparency in the façade, Paul de Ruiter himself developed the perforated and folded (deep-drawn) aluminium panels. The perforation and folding profile were tested in numerous test panels to achieve the desired result. The glass and the aluminium panels are contained in extruded aluminium profiles, which were also specially designed for this project. From the inside, the façade acts as a diffuse screen that admits daylight and gives a fragmented view of the outside world. In the evenings, the façade allows artificial light through and the building shines like a massive lantern.
