Naturally, it’s always the architect’s dream to start with a completely blank sheet of paper. In reality, we often have to work with, and make the very best, of what we are presented with on-site. In this case, converting an existing warehouse and offices into VW dealership Commissioned by Inchcape, we had to fully realise and deliver the VW VRC concept. However, the building configuration meant there was little natural light – especially in the customer seating area.
Our solution obviously had to be as aesthetically pleasing as it was effective. So we fitted an artificial light box which doesn’t dazzle or glare, but gently gives the effect of natural daylight.
