Haniel-Garage Düsseldorf

The Haniel-Großgarage was built in 1951 as Germany’s first multi-storey car park.
There was a motel attached to it, entirely in line with the leitmotif of a car-friendly town and the expectation of an American development going hand in hand with this car boom.
The garage had a total of 500 parking spaces.
What is of note is the outside access ramps hung into the cantilevered concrete girders bearing the roof. The full glass shell makes for a for functional buildings previously unattained lightness and transparency.
The motel on concrete supports beneath it provided some more parking spaces. The twelve rooms and the restaurant could be accessed by an access balcony.
The building was listed in 1985 and restored in 1992/1993. The garage no longer is a public multi-storey car park but now used by a car dealership.
