Project's description: We were asked to design their new space merging precise workshop needs with a physical and digital platform to showcase their work.
We proposed a single continuous monochromatic space containing four car bays, a car wash sector, a living room, and a private office. Simple metal parts compose a language of industrial elements that create a dialogue between space and cars. Everything that happens inside is visible from the storefront, and so, the workspace becomes a dark grey setting.
We developed a direct lightning scheme all over the project based on a requested geometric pattern. But we designed everything using cheap standard-size LED tubes and dichroic light bulbs. We defined car bay spaces with expanded metal dividers and pendant lighting columns.
The repetition of familiar elements arranged in an unexpected way results in a space with character and easy maintenance. The design had to feel useful, balancing a workshop functionality with a neat storefront to epitomize the core values of the brand.
