Description & Challenge
The resulting floor plan of this development provided a long rectilinear shape with the narrow showroom end fronting the high-traffic Interstate 95 exposure that the owner sought. Accordingly, the addition of an architectural element called the Blade dramatically expands the architectural mass and presence from I-95. This feature was rendered in the color red (to maximize presence) and ran the element through the interior of the showroom. The result was a strong and unique visible presence from the exterior and interior.
