Keyes European, a Mercedes Benz retailer, located on the densely populated dealership mecca of Van Nuys in Los Angeles, stands out as a glowing beacon. Conceived as a museum to feature fine autos rather than a traditional monolithic dealership, this transparent glass jewel attracts patrons amongst many competitors.
Working within budget, energy conservation, maintenance and constructability, Keyes European surpasses the competition as a premiere example of lighting design for automotive retailers. Careful coordination and architectural integration of light fixtures - from conception to commissioning - provides an aesthetic, yet highly functional facility for the Keyes staff.
