Staunton and Waynesboro, Va
G & W Motorwerkes made its reputation preserving and restoring rare Porsche classics. In 2005, this international company completed the rehabilitation of a building in historic downtown Staunton as their flagship showroom. Frazier Associates worked closely with the owner to restore the building to comply with local historic district guidelines. The sleek contemporary interior included a drive-in showroom and a conference room on street level, plus private offices above. The project received a Best Commercial Rehabilitation Award from Historic Staunton Foundation.
In 2010, the company decided to relocate to a larger showroom and shop space in nearby Waynesboro, Virginia’s historic downtown, and again called upon Frazier Associates for designs to rehabilitate their building. An approximately 33,000 sq. ft. former furniture store was transformed into a Porsche dealership by reworking existing finishes and altering both the front and rear entrances to allow for vehicular entry. Again, a sleek contemporary space was created to compliment the Porshe image.
