Wappinger Falls, New Jersey
The formerly vacant property had been purchased by Prestige MINI to serve as the premier MINI dealership in Dutchess County. SNS Architects & Engineers, PC, completely designed the new 20,000 sq. ft., ground-up building, to reflect the quality and standards set forth by Prestige Mini’s sister facility in Ramsey, NJ.
Utilizing MINI USA’s design parameters, the building successfully displays the unique automobiles in a concept consistent with the manufacturer’s corporate identity. The dealership consists of a two-story high showroom with a state-of-the-art service center. Some key design elements include a floating glass display cube and an environmentally-friendly car wash with full reclamation.
A unique design feature of the project was the creation of a landscaped vehicle display berm. While serving as a product display, along the heavily trafficked Route 9, it also successfully screens the product inventory onsite.
We listen. Each project is unique and requires specific resolutions.
We listen carefully. Our clients’ objectives and ultimate goals determine our methods and solutions so that an effective and smooth transition can be achieved between intent, execution and realization.
Flexibility is of paramount importance in our design approach. Whether the project is large or small, the level of service and attention is the same. Each design must provide our clients with the comfort that the absolute best has been achieved; aesthetically, efficiently and cost effectively with rapid response and adherence to schedules.
We solve problems. Problems and unexpected conditions on a project are challenges we meet and resolve every day. It is not enough making the most of advantageous conditions and compensating for the limitations; we enhance each project by going beyond the obvious solution and provide value that goes far beyond the fee of our services.
This is done with our response to our clients’ human, physical or external programming factors.
By listening to our clients’ objectives and understanding our clients’ goals, we synthesize program and form, materials and methods with creativity and innovation to provide spaces of vitality and identity.
Such spaces remain cost effective, flexible, and efficient with proper project management – a trait we have learned well in our almost five decades of practice.
We design. Teamwork and personal responsibility are ingrained in our design philosophy with projects served directly by Principals and associates; we remain “on top” of all conditions that may arise.
We are collaborative. Relationships with our consultants and close coordination of their work result in excellence of the end product.
We are contingent on the mutual trust and respect of our team members and our clients. The success of the project and the level of satisfaction of our clients is the reason for our professional longevity and our continuing success.
