In an effort to redefine the used car industry, Car MRI a vehicle inspection and diagnostic service strives to educate consumers and to provide transparent business practices. The open floor plan of the reception and waiting area, coupled with a large window overlooking the garage, emphasizes this idea of transparency by inviting consumers to witness the entire car inspection process. It was necessary that the design, furniture and layout itself highlight the natural flow of the consumer experience through the space. The high contrast gray and white ceilings, walls and floors (abstracted from xray images) visually connect the exterior facade, garage space and the interior office into a cohesive environment. The surfaces are laden with informational graphics intended to educate visitors on general vehicle information and maintenance.
