From the architect: One of the laterals, which separates its space with the concessionary, was made of steel and coated in matt black aluminium composite material. The space conceptually matches with the store's format, transmitting the idea of being inside a racing Garage-Box.
The main entrance is inside the concessionary, it also has an access gate from the exterior, which makes possible the entry of a vehicle into this sector, in case it is required.
The GRG has a showcase displaying clothing, accessories, merchandising and tires, a racing simulator sector, an informal living with four competition seats and a table made of automotive parts, this equipment completes the experience that the space was designed to transmit. LED screens are located in an elevated profile showing racing images and/or exclusive interviews of Toyota's racing drivers.
Subtly lowering the heigh of the space, the suspended ceiling was made with a metallic grill/grid and it holds the illumination, which is composed of scenography lights and low-consumption, high-luminosity led artifacts.
The tiled floor was made with built in PVC tiles, just like those found in competition spaces, these are removable, transit resistant and of vivacious colours. This floor extends itself onto the lounge, creating this way an intermediate exhibition space, where one of the intervened vehicles is located.
Delimiting the sector externally, an ACM special profile, works both as coating and a billboard.
