Automotive Dealerships Nationwide

Shown here to illustrate complexity in design and coordination of hidden structural elements, the Audi “curved wall” and MINI wall-mounted car are a testament to complex, technical issues that have to be coordinated in a project.  Equipment is essential to the operations of automotive dealerships requiring detailed coordination between the Architect, Structural and MEPFP Engineers.  Pits and drains in concrete slabs must be located properly to coordinate with placement of equipment and many requirements related to fire protection must be coordinated with paint booths.  

Brand identity must be maintained throughout the process of design.  Automotive dealership locations designed are shown below.

​​​​​​Rehabilitation, Raising and Addition Design
 

This c.1932 beach cottage, originally sited very close to the ground was raised and the porch expanded.  The Cottage also received a new roof.  Interior work included re-configuring and expanding the existing kitchen and an addition that relocated the main bathroom and added a utility room.  Electrical was upgraded and a mechanical system was added.  The “hog-board” foundation detail is typical of Low Country style seen historically in South Carolina and Georgia—horizontal boards stacked with small  spaces between for air circulation and screen applied to keep the insects out. A perimeter French drain, in lieu of gutters and downspouts, was also added to keep rainwater draining from the roof away from the foundation as there are no gutters.

Rehabilitation and Addition Design
 

Historic Tax Credit Rehabilitation and Addition

 

This historic residence was renovated after having been vacant for approximately 30 years. An addition was also necessary to accommodate a new kitchen and code compliant access to the second floor space. The wall construction presented a particular challenge when introducing modern heating and air conditioning systems. The walls are constructed of vertical posts with horizontal tongue and groove boards sandwiched between the posts and diagonal sheathing under the exterior siding. The project also included a pool house.

Historic Town House Rehabilitation

 

Historic Townhouse rehabilitation that included the conversion to a single-family residence with ground-level apartment from multi levels of apartments. The exterior required restoration to the stucco, ironwork detailing and cornice. Exterior work also included the addition of a two story porch on the rear of the townhouse. Interior included a full renovation beginning with the demolition of each floor's apartment rentals transforming the property into a luxury 3 bedroom 3 1/2 bath townhouse with a gourmet kitchen and porch for every level. The ground level apartment was renovated to accommodate two bedrooms and two bathrooms with upgraded finishes.
