Client: POWER Auto Group
Architect: Timothy Brunner, AIA

POWER Auto Group hired AXIS to transform an old, vacant dealership into a new state of art dealership. The building is located on 4.6 acres in south Salem, Oregon. The existing building lacked any connection between the service reception area and the showroom. The design included removal of an existing wall that connected the two parts so the showroom, service reception and retail parts area are connected by the customer lounge, with a visual connection that provides transparency. This helps the customer connect to each part on the building and helps that staff better serve the customers. The utilization of glazing further enhances the customer experience by providing vast amounts of natural light.
