Auckland’s Eco Ironbank Features Robotic Car Stacking Garage
Ironbank’s front facade offers retail space and has been built to respect the height of the Victorian and Edwardian buildings that surround it. The rear of the building is a seven-story office tower composed of a rusty facade and container-like blocks stacked at skewed angles. While the front respects the historic nature of the street, the back contrasts with a very industrial, utilitarian and functional aesthetic and program.
The innovative and automatic car stacking system parks 95 cars underground with a robot, where 25 of those spaces are designated for small cars. Energy-efficient design and lighting lower energy use and create a more comfortable environment for the employees and visitors to the building.
