The building is situated at a prominent intersection in Winnipeg with extensive frontage with visual access to three sides of the building allowing for a unique and bold Architecture to convey an icon and flagship location for the Donvito Automotive Group.
The state of the art aluminum repair program is the primary driver in the development of the design. The various angles and volumes convey automotive detail and movement while the materials selected for both the interior and exterior portray an image of precision towards a unique service provided by the Donvito Automotive Group Collision Centre.
The architecture of the building also demonstrates transparency between the public and the interior spaces allowing the auto body functions and service to be transparent to the customer, rather than simply a back-of-house requirement. The predominantly glazed facade allows for the operations of the auto body to be viewed from the exterior and interior glazed openings connecting customer reception to production areas. This further emphasizes transparency towards trust in service. This architectural feature is an extension of an online service provided to all clients to view up to the minute repair progress on their vehicle.
