The most distinctive feature of this concrete 1930s building is its graceful, barrel vaulted wood ceiling. Light and air permeate our design. We accentuated the ceiling’s rhythm with a simple, striped tile pattern for the floor. A curved ramp links the remodeled upper showroom with the new main floor. As the floor runs up the ramp encircling the showroom’s reception desk, individual tiles have been hand-cut into a radial pattern. This subtle detail echoes the craftsmanship of the cars displayed in the showroom.
