The brief entailed the refurbishment of an existing Spoornet Shed into a vehicle showroom for Pupkewitz Auto, all within a tight timeframe and limited budget. The aim was to provide a contemporary street façade that will draw attention to the new showroom, visible from the nearby Lazaret intersection. The existing shed received a newly clad street façade with big glazed shop fronts. A dark grey exterior was chosen, contrasting against the light interior accentuated by a bright yellow wall at the back of the showroom. What used to be an insignificant shed is now a simple, yet striking showpiece, significant in its own right.
