The Tire Store is located on a primary commercial arterial and the client wanted to make a strong visual impact that was compatible with the other properties that were developed in the area.
The new structure replaces an older non-descript building that was near the owner's existing Tire Store. The owner wanted an upscale look that would attract new customers and still keep his existing customers. The concrete masonry walls and metal siding provide a new look with the traditional automotive look, but create a durable and low maintenance facility.
The building consists of three large service bays, a storage mezzanine, accessory office space, and area for customer waiting with product display of tires and wheels.
The building has CMU exterior beam walls with a steel joist and steel deck roof system. The customer waiting and product display portion of the building has metal siding over part of the CMU. The large glass storefront exterior provides a highly visible and well-lighted customer area. A stained concrete floor and a high ceiling with an open suspended grid help create the upscale look the owner wanted.
