A detailed analysis was carried out with the clients that included a top gear type cool wall analysis of precedents, where we then developed a scheme that truly embodied their ethos. The site was due to include a range of customer facing spaces and technical bays along with support spaces to enable modification and tuning of vehicles. In addition a further space was created to the end of the site to allow for the building to be sub-divided and rented until the company expanded into the entire site.
The key items that were considered was the scale of the development, the rhythm of the building, apertures and key accents were added to really make the building standout. It was important throughout the development, not only to consider the staff but also the customer journey as well as representatives that would visit to get specialist training.
