Tomorrow is Collector Car Appreciation Day, and what better project to showcase than our Indiana Autobarn. The owners have a 13 car collection of vintage and collectible vehicles ranging from a Ford Model T 1921 Roadster to a Jaguar 2013 XLJ Sedan. To house the elaborate collection, we created a multiuse structure that combines a soaring car showroom with a modern, versatile entertainment space. The exterior was constructed using prefabricated components, making the shell go up quickly and added fire protection for the collection. With an 8,000 square foot building, the challenge was to not make it seem too imposing. This was accomplished by breaking down the scale so it didn’t look like a huge box, but rather a local Indiana farmland structure with rural character.
