Best Auto appointed ARCA Unlimited to design a building to accommodate not only their showroom for new and BMW approved used passenger vehicles (with associated service facilities) but also BMW Motorrad. The design had to accommodate a long, narrow site with limited access potential and adhere to BMW building standards. The building reflects the underlying BMW values of premium quality and efficiency through a contemporary and elegant box design with linear elements and squared-off shapes that are void of curves. A compact design integrates all business components and encourages collaboration between different services. The dealer principle is located at a central point from which all business components can be managed. Strategically placed shop fronts provide visibility to all areas. As the site necessitates the building to face north-west, a series of vertical glass louvres and a combination of white marmoran and off-shutter concrete limit solar heat gain.
