This project came to XA as a "metal building" with a "trailer office" project and evolved into a custom designed steel building project, integrated with polycarbonate window and roof walls and natural stone finishes to highlight the clients products. This initial concept was not accepted by the Palm Desert Design Review Board, which demanded an integrated warehouse/ showroom/ office structure, and well-designed steel building if that was to be the building type. XA took this opportunity to introduce both industrial finishes such as corrugated steel wall finishes, polycarbonate panels for natural day lighting and sunscreen, and use of the clients own 9' x 5' stone panels as accent siding finishes. We also brought the two separate building components together, separated by a sunroom breezeway for circulation and transition, which provided a beautiful transition from intimate showroom and offices into the larger stone display warehouse.
