Audi of Nashville was part of a 3-franchise automotive complex developed in the affluent suburb of Brentwood, just south of Nashville. Goree Architects was involved in the planning and zoning approval process alongside the client and civil engineer.
This is a more traditional prototype Audi facility compared to that of Goree's first Audi project (Audi Central Houston). Audi's design firm, CDR Studios, provided guidance on the facility's primary structural massing divided into 3 "volumes". The first being the showroom volume, then offices and second floor functions, and lastly the service shop as the third volume.
Two unique components to the project was (1) the master planning of the complex with all 3 franchises and (2) the building faces the opposite direction of the main highway. Thus, the rear elevation was treated accordingly as to provide prominence and signage. The complex also included a shared make ready building consisting of a drive thru car wash tunnel, (6) detail bays, and a photo booth room; approx. 7,350 sf.
