JHS Architecture was retained by the Jim Hudson Automotive Group to design their new Lexus Dealership. This single-level, 50,000 square foot facility was built at the intersection of I-77 and the Killian Road interchange in northeast Columbia. JHS has worked very closely with the Hudson organization to design a premier automotive dealership in keeping with the elegance of the Lexus brand. This new 50,000 square foot facility displayed the level of design intricacy found in the vehicles it showcases.
Upon entering the showroom one literally experienced the feel of a Lexus before ever approaching a vehicle. The showroom is appointed with granite floors and highly detailed wood panel accents. The glass and aluminum curtain wall system and clerestory windows flood the two story volume with natural light. A client lounge, business center, and children’s play area are available to clients while their vehicle is being serviced in one of the 23 bay state-of- the-art service bays.
