How to transform a multi-storey parking garage into a bicycle parking – in Breda the basement of the Concordia garage has had a complete makeover. Not only by the placement of bicycle stands, but the grey concrete was transformed by colourful furnishings with pictures referring to the town’s history. The new bicycle parking provides room for 420 bicycles.

The unsightly concrete parking basement has been transformed into a pleasant location for both visitors and staff, with chandeliers, gold walls and ceilings and colours particularly relevant to the town’s history.

In this way, people can not only park their bicycles, but also come into contact with their town’s past in a relaxed way. Incidentally, quite a number of architectural adaptations had to be made, a pedestrian stairway had to be replaced by a ramp, for instance. And a separate space has been designed for motor bikes and mopeds that can be reached by way of the entrance and exit for cars.
