The Toyota Tsusho complex in Pardubice is basically a two-cube form concept – one cube form for the showroom with vehicles on display and the other for the workshop building with the vehicle servicing and building services areas. The solid parts of the external envelope are lined with panels of light grey colour. The prominently overhanging roof is to prevent overheating inside the glazed building in summer months. As the roof has an elliptical shape, the depth of the roof overhang over the facade will vary. The aluminium doors and windows in the solid part of the external envelope are grey. The customers’ access to the showroom building is through a prominent portal. The workshop building with panel beating and painting workshops provide a technological base for selling cars, the building is slightly lower and less aesthetically prominent and its external envelope is lined with panelling of medium grey colour. The expressive effect of the building is further increased by a dark grey strip on the facade below the attic roof and the dark great colour of the gate openings. The door and window frames are grey. The plinth, finished with mosaic rendering is in dark grey contrasting with the external envelope. Above the entrances providing access for vehicles there is a light galvanised steel roofing structure. With the use of high-quality building materials, sophisticated colour of the external envelope and precision detailing, the structure is designed to complement the image of the Toyota vehicles, renowned for their quality and reliability.
