OK Auto 4WD & Tire
Our goal for the addition and the renovations was to create a building that fit into the 4 x 4 and auto lifestyle. The project doubled their retail space, added more storage space and we carved out some office/conference space on the second floor for their growing support staff, and two new loading areas. The facility also was in need of some public ammenities, like bathrooms and a waiting area. This all had to be done while they were still 100% open for business. Due to the parking lot frontage we also wanted to raise some of the feature elements higher to get above the trucks parked in front of the building.

Throw a lift in the corner of the showroom, illuminate it at night, and BAM!, you've got yourself a show!
Inexpensive, but well crafted cabinets which reflect the industrial nature of the work these folks do. The super graphic in the background allows monitoring and views from the out-of-view office.

Entry - new
We wanted to give the new entry a street presence, so we extended the windows from ground to roof, and added much needed roof protection.
