A village downtown is at risk of becoming a victim of its own success in attracting new businesses, arts venues, and apartments. Can innovative design add to the parking stock while helping residents and visitors make more efficient use of existing parking lots?
To make better use of the parking Patchogue already has, dub Studios designed a parking deck as part of a shared parking system called “Brackets.” Brackets comprises a new mid-block parking deck, designed to be airy, open, and easy to access, as well as a wayfinding system of automated signs that directs drivers to lots with free spaces. The network of pedestrian pathways, signage, and landscape improvements would make it easier to find available parking, and more pleasurable to walk through the lots and alleys that link parking lots to Main Street.
