Ye Olde Car Wash

The owners of Ye Olde Car Wash purchased a seemingly undevelopable plot of land at the corner of Robious Road and Midlothian Turnpike and came to Balzer and Associates, Inc. for a design solution. The program was to include three wash bays, equipment room, office and a decent amount of storage space. The building was to be highly visible from all sides, requiring that a good amount of attention be paid to the utilitarian elements. A high brick parapet wall surrounds the rooftop while two varying brick colors add interest to the fa├žade. Custom fabricated metal brackets are attached to the underside of the canopy, which, along with the metal roof, is color-matched to the neighboring shopping center.
