Design Solutions - Fall 2021 - 46

The intent of the new
showroom, which opened
spring of 2019, was to
provide a coherent museum
quality design for a building
with adjoining display space
for two distinctly different
furniture companies. The
building is split in half along
its east/west axis with
Caracole occupying the north
portion of the building and
A.R.T. occupying the south.
Architects for the project
were Freeman Kennett
Architects, located in High
Point. Architectural woodwork
for the building was
fabricated by AWI member
firm Rowland Woodworking
Inc., also of High Point.
Two Showrooms
The size and shape of
the footprint was influenced
by the one-acre, downtown
site, says Peter Freeman, AIA.
" To maximize the amount
of square feet available
for showroom space, the
building was built to the
maximum shape and size
allowed by the site restraints.
The building sits on a 37,800
square foot granite clad
base which serves to anchor
the building to the site. The
building rises above the base
with a peak height of 85
feet at the top of the 40-foot
diameter translucent dome.
The design and construction
process from inception to
completion was 24 months. "
The entrance to the
Caracole showroom at the
north/west corner of the
building has a softer and
more curvilinear aesthetic.
At this entrance, the warped
panels are " peeled " apart
at the corner of the building
to provide a glimpse of the
more traditionally influenced,
three-story lobby/atrium.
The entrance to the A.R.T.
showroom at the south/
west corner of the building
has a more modern and
geometric aesthetic. At this
entrance, the warped panels
are " sliced " away from the
building to provide a view of
the more modern influenced,
lobby/atrium.
The white " warped
panels " of the building's
facade are reminiscent of
a traditional folding fan as
it spreads apart, explains
Freeman. The openings
between the warped panels
are filled with glass and
aluminum panels that face
90 degrees from the face of
the building. As the glass
and aluminum panels rise,
they switch their orientation
as they intersect with the
warped panels. This allows
for constantly changing views
as one proceeds through the
building vertically.
