The intent of the Dolan Lexus Dealership was to change the way people think about buying a new car. The flagship store in Reno is a true collaboration between OneStudio D+A, formerly MBA Architecture + Interior Design, the Dolan Auto Group and Clark/Sullivan Construction.
The shared vision was to offer the finest customer experience by providing amenities such as a coffee bar, lounge areas, a business center, and a concierge. These elements were meant to create an ambiance akin to a luxury hotel. Additionally, a rain curtain water feature, sculptural chandelier, monumental staircase and a modern fireplace were signature elements meant to enhance the opulent atmosphere. On the second floor, a demonstration showroom and outdoor terrace can be used for private functions and community events.
The dealership maintains 36 service bays, including 4 lube pits, a car wash, and three detailing bays. A great deal of planning was put into the number and location of the various spaces to provide a productive flow of services and to minimize customer wait times. This comprehensive facility also includes back-of-house spaces, such as a training room, conference room, break room, photo room and MDF data center.
