The 2nd Lexus Showroom for BRD Group, the Southport showroom required the redevelopment of an existing building on a restricted corner site. Significant changes to the existing structure were needed to upgrade from the current 3 car showroom and 4 bay workshop. The redevelopment involved a neighbouring block of land to allow for expansion. The workshop structure only was retained, along with the slab of the existing showroom.
The new development included a stand-alone showroom for up to 20 cars, sales desks, reception and waiting areas, several management offices, boardroom, new car delivery room, customer lounge and amenities, staff facilities, and significant external vehicle display. The resultant design has produced one of the largest Lexus showrooms in Australia and is a signature showroom for the Gold Coast.
