Graves Architects, Inc. (now Graves Design Group) was lead professional and provided the comprehensive architectural design services for this 7.5 story parking garage design, leading a team of multi-faceted design professionals and other public/private entities, which resulted in providing a dynamic architectural design statement. This Art Deco Style parking garage building embraces the full contextual issues of the surrounding buildings and their uses, and, is characteristic of the festive spirit of the development theme associated with nearby buildings in the development of the parking garage design in Pittsburgh, PA.
The Pittsburgh design architect took care in fashioning the overall parking garage building massing and scale, as reflected in the treatment of inverted corner stair towers. This design uses bold clear-cut moldings with emphasis on horizontal lines to create rhythmic relationships with the surrounding buildings. The columns are out-board, to create divisions of scale and to provide a framework for parking garage architectural design order.
