New build multi-storey car park + bus station El Biar in Algier


As part of the strategic realignment of public transport in the city of Algiers, studies were made of 46 locations deemed to be suitable for parking facilities. For 6 particularly urgent projects, an international planning competition was tendered in advance. AMP, in collaboration with the Algerian planning office SAETI, won the contract for a total of 3 of the outlined locations.

After 6 years of construction, the first project to be completed in spring 2018 was the El Biar multi-storey car park.

It offers a total of 835 parking spaces on 7 levels. Situated on the ground floor is a bus station with 7 bus platforms and a café on the roof, with offices in the basement area.

The façade consists of individual, inclined glass slats, which ensure natural ventilation of the parking levels and a generous amount of daylight.

The 2.50 m wide parking spaces are user-friendly, positioned at an angle of 75 ° and the spaces are column-free despite sitting in the highest level earthquake zone.
