A Tempting Green Alternative
Sometimes you can be satisfied with a design even if it doesn’t get built. Such is the case with our proposed design for a local car dealership. We pursued with the client building a showroom that deviated from the all too common glass boxes that seem to be everywhere these days. Roof overhangs, LED lighting, a showroom that actually opens to the outdoors, and covered outdoor car “porches” with misting for those scorching summer days completed our design for what we hoped would be the first environmentally friendly car dealership in the northstate. Whether we were too different for corporate standards, or just not the right architect for this project, we’ll never know. But we’re more than happy to continue the pursuit of new standards in green design, even when it goes against conventional thinking.
