Below is an example of the firm’s work on another commercial project. The Audi Van Nuys location is designed in a contemporary fashion, with slanting walls and interior structures making up the design of the building. It features an open concept reception area, where buyers can both talk to experts and browse through the available vehicles. The opacity of the exterior’s material also serves to give a brief glimpse into the latest vehicles, while offering a layer of security by obscuring views of the interior that might be too revealing.
