Working within the vision and requirements of an international corporate design program presents unique but ultimately exciting challenges. Ernst Brothers, in collaboration with the Steven Beltz, Architect, developed this project from the ground up, incorporating all site development in addition to the building’s construction.
Exterior features include a 10-percent-slope glass storefront and exposed structural steel columns, which coordinate precisely with the Alucobond® lightweight metal panels and aluminum sun shade surrounding the top of the building. Serving as the interior focal point, a sweeping central staircase rises from the showroom floor to administrative offices above the cars and sales desks.
