|Conversion of a Chevrolet/Hyundai/Hummer dealership into a new 107,910 SF retail and wholesale facility for Ganahl Lumber. Facility was an amalgamation of assorted building and styles, and the challenge was to take disparate elements and create a cohesive store. Site is located over the Eaton wash; the previous owners had constructed a structural cover to store and display automobiles. With the new development, the story of the wash was retold by incorporating retention area and landscape features with the appearance of the original wash.
The material stock, the lumber, panel products, tools, and other sundries are organized for convenience and as its own design element complementing the basic themes of the store.
The project is considered a well-known community resource for building supplies appropriate to Pasadena homes and buildings, and will act as a template for remodels and future stores.
