P-Pergamentti Car Park is a building central to the new residential area of Jyväskylä. Its concrete surfaces are brightened by colorful wayfinding designed to help in orientation while bringing joy to the lives of those who use it.
In our background research for the design we studied old maps of the city and found seven illustrative motifs that we applied to each floor together with bright colors.
