12th Street Coffee

Big things sometimes come in small packages and this café demands a big impact with a small footprint. Located near Atlanta’s largest outdoor destination, Piedmont Park, this café required careful design consideration on multiple fronts. Providing service to the residents in the apartments above as well as the pedestrians visiting the park, the café needs a unique identity that still pays homage to its iconic local surroundings. It also needs the ability to seamlessly flow out into the street-life, attracting local foot traffic, while still functioning effectively in a tighter, enclosed space through unfavorable weather conditions. It’s an invitation for a drink with a side of drama so the choice is yours to stay for a while, or keep on moving through the city that provides the original inspiration.

Nalley Ford

The Nalley Ford renovation includes updating the sales and service buildings to the current Ford image. Attention is drawn to the improved showroom by the addition of a curving entry element, wing wall extensions, and new metal panel façade. A new customer waiting/work space and enlarged retail parts area enrich the customer experience at the upgraded service building.

Naples Volvo

Naples Volvo is a 24,000 SF ground up construction automobile dealership consistent with the current Volvo Retail Experience. The exterior façade is comprised of translucent glass paneling whose simple elegance is true to the brand’s Scandinavian heritage and allows the showroom vehicle displays to be the focus of attention. The showroom includes a customer “Living Room”, coffee bar, and lifestyle shop. The building’s enclosed service drive, shop, carwash and detail area will offer current and future Volvo owners a complete and convenient service experience.
