Car showrooms

… are buildings for the sale (and purchase) of passenger vehicles. Rooms for repair work (workshops) are normally integrated. The buildings are generally composed of a large and well-appointed foyer and sales hall in which diverse car models can be presented. The hall-like foyer and sales area is generally combined with multi-storey partitioned spaces and annexes to provide office space, workshops, social rooms and sanitary facilities.   

Car showrooms are normally designed as steel or reinforced concrete skeleton frames combined with insulating metal facades or sandwich thermo-elements. The large and well-appointed foyer and sales rooms generally feature glazed metal post-and-rail constructions.
