Isuzu Truck Showroom
by Cox Rayner Architects

    

IN THE ARCHITECTS WORDS

The Truck Centre is designed to reflect and embody a changed image for Isuzu in its highly competitive market, coupling the ethos of good architectural design with that of truck design. The building is prominently positioned on Beaudesert Road known for its high traffic exposure. It is part of a comprehensive site which incorporates indoor/outdoor truck display, truck servicing and storage. The building is designed to capture attention through a
 
 

combination of sweeping roof, exploratory structure and materials composition, each darkened to generate contrast against the trucks which from now on will be all white. This brief requirement led to a dynamic process of interaction with a client who had not previously engaged an architect, this process becoming an unusually interesting series of discussions about form, space, scale, light and materials, given that the facility is but a vehicular showroom.
