We helped Lithia & Driveway revamp their Portland showroom into the mid-century modern space of their dreams!
Lithia & Driveway’s new Portland showroom is anything but basic. In fact, it’s so homey that it feels like you’re shopping from the comfort of your own living room!
When we first met with the client, Driveway asked us to create a sleek and airy mid-century modern space for shoppers to fall in love with their next car. As the general contractors demolished walls, put up new frames and drywalled, our design team measured the space and incorporated the desired aesthetic into several creative concepts for Driveway to consider. Once a design direction was selected, our engineering team took the lead on building drawings for the 3D components and identifying all electrical needs. This first phase involved two wall-mounted TVs and a stand-alone kiosk topped with a lit logo, but the upcoming second phase involves additional screens that will also need power. So, our engineers worked with the contractor to ensure outlets were in the correct placements for the various components of all production phases.
The 82-foot slat wall required precision and collaboration. With three installers working together to deliver, glue, space and nail the wood strips, we were able to install the entire wall in just three days!
The timeline was tight. Installation occurred over a five-day window spanning wall murals, glass privacy film, floor vinyl, framed wall graphics, canvas-wrapped photography, and all 3D elements – wood slat wall, a dimensional logo, LED lighting, a kiosk, and TV displays. Ongoing direct communication with the client was key to ensuring our team could install the various components in conjunction with the other construction and décor companies working to bring the space to life. We can’t wait to work on phase two of the showroom!
