Norwood Village Cadillac Norwood, MA
The objective of this complex project was the modernization of the existing Cadillac showroom, plus design and construction of a new, adjacent Hummer showroom.Both projects needed to meet corporate design criteria.
At the owner’s request, the linear design of GM’s Cadillac Retail Environment Program was integrated with the graceful, circular shape of the existing showroom.Upgrades to the facade with GM approved materials and detailing met all corporate requirements in order to qualify for program incentives.Contemporary interior finishes in the showroom and customer waiting area create a relaxed ambiance.Redesigned work spaces for sales and administrative staff complete the transformation of a 1960’s facility into a 21st century contemporary environment.
Existing site conditions for the Hummer showroom required significant modification of GM’s conceptual design.Situated on a major 4-lane highway leading into Boston, the new building is positioned to sit parallel to the road, providing maximum exposure to highway traffic.It obscures an unsightly brick wall previously visible from the road while maintaining the maximum amount of vehicle storage in the outdoor lots.Additional changes to GM’s concept design enhanced vehicular circulation and client parking, translating to considerable cost savings for the owner.
