Expansion Autohaus Schmohl, Glattbrugg ZH
Showroom for luxury cars
The showroom for Rolls-Royce, Lamborghini, Bugatti, and Bentley that was built in 2005 is being expanded to more than double its size. A new brand, Aston Martin, is now also represented.
Between two high-traffic transportation arteries, the building culminates in the beacon of the rising showroom. The two-story museum-like hall with its galleries on the ground floor and the clear structure of the façade are perpetuated. The deliberately angular forms, the industrial character, and the largely untreated materials are a striking contrast to the curved forms and polished surfaces of the showpieces.
The building’s construction is a concrete skeleton structure with flat roofs and curtain wall façade. The load-bearing structure of the façade consists of very simple industrial steel beams.
