Car showroom, Glasgow

This new build car showroom comprises a three storey showroom, workshop, eight storey display tower, and multistorey car park.  The location in central Glasgow was a brownfield site, formerly occupied by DC Thomson printworks. The site levels required an innovative solution: a multi-level showroom.  A double height showroom sits at street level, with a lower level used car display below.  At the upper level are administrative functions. 

The striking car tower provides two functions: the transfer of vehicles between different levels, while also providing a unique display for the dealership, visible from the adjacent motorway. 

The dealership is also home to a modern workshop, flooded with natural light.  A separate multi-level car park provides efficient vehicle storage as well as valet facilities on this compact site.
