Response to a historic context
The project balanced large-scale storage and conservation workshops for an extraordinary collection of automobiles with the context of a bucolic historic park near the Queen’s Palace. We placed public-facing functions such as a reception hall, conference center and food service around a small-scaled courtyard. Its character – with distinctive brickwork and steeply sloped roofs with dormers – is reminiscent of a Dutch carriage house.
Assembling industrial components
Working with the client, one of Europe’s largest car dealers, we utilized industrial building technologies to produce an efficient, economical and sustainable place for storing cars and displaying them — along with a wide variety of automotive art — in temporary and permanent galleries. By placing smaller elements such as an octagonal gallery aside the large volume, we created contemplative space for visitors within the landscape.
