Zimbrick BMW Automotive Retail Center was designed to be a large display case exhibiting fine automobiles. The front of the building, housing the sales area, is transparent to allow maximum visibility, while the service area is clad with modular metal panels.

The building’s retail component is one large, double-height volume that creates a clear connection between inside and out. A single canopy extends the length of the building and transitions into a covered outdoor vehicle display.
