11.1 : Commercial Scale Projects : KAR
______________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________

In 2007 11.1 was asked to develop the remodeling of an existing Butler-truss warehouse in the North of Los Angeles. The intent was provide an existing used car dealership with a representative architectural environment. Challenges lay in transforming a bare warehouse structure with minimal effort to acknowledge a small budget and to pass regulations of the building department without seismically reinforcing the structure. The solutions lay in outfitting the interior with an open office plan and to minimize interior modifications while the exterior is equipped with a lightweight skin to display the dominant, stark architectural features.
