Design values of a Marque
To showcase superbly designed motor vehicles, Ezzy Architects created a light contemporary space of steel and glass that not only showcases but also reflects the structural values of the vehicles themselves.
The sense of patterned geometry creates a high tech feel while the muted tones offset and highlight the blue Mercedes branding.
The showroom boasts a generous sense of space yet incorporates a mezzanine to an additional 50% of functional workspace. The mezzanine solution avoided the need for a new DA as the overall building is still a single storey with existing usage already approved. For a busy retailer, this saved a significant amount of unnecessary cost and lost trading time.
Completed in 2009, this large scale development was successful both in gaining local community support and also in that Mercedes Waitara went on to win awards for Metropolitan Dealership of the Year in 2011 and 2012.
