The unique concept behind this 2500 square meter service centre was driven by the inclusion of flagship micro-showrooms for the two companies sharing the space creating a new kind of experience for their clients. The workshop component is very efficient in its use of natural day lighting and the volume created is leveraged to create quality spaces for the mechanics social areas which are often overlooked in this building typology. A small office component is raised above the public zone and given views over the workshops which encourages a flattened social hierarchy.
