Architect: Stephen Perry Smith Architects, Inc.
Owner: Commercial Horizons Inc.
Contractor: Miron Construction
The architect established a strong design vernacular consistent with Market Square at Pabst Farms, while integrating the Mills Fleet Farm brand.
Exterior materials of the facility consist of a vertically and horizontally articulated precast panel perimeter skin. These are accented with taller thin veneer masonry clad panels at the projecting corners. Intermediate and main entrance elements are capped with flat roof projecting canopies, featuring square grid patterned insets and supporting architectural brackets. The roof edge around the entire perimeter is articulated with raised parapets and tower elements above the projecting masonry panels.
The main entrance features an arcade of brick columns with arched openings and a stepped cornice treatment with brackets to promote the Pabst Farms theme with grid scored canopies over the aluminum framed glazed doors and display windows. These arched elements are repeated as insets in the brick corners with precast arched lintels, while providing human scale to the building.
The car wash building has been designed to integrate Mills Fleet Farm retail building materials and arched lintel details with the addition of a standing seam slope roof to give it increased scale and detail from Pabst Farms Boulevard.
The gas pump canopy recalls the same stepped cornice treatment of the retail building.
