SHOP DESIGN

Zix Performance

Our client had a passion for cars, at first modifying his own, then slowly applying this knowledge to others. As his expertise grew, so did the customers. In 2016, Sir Zix as he was known to the Montero Sport Community, set out to provide a more professional venue to serve his customers, and a workplace for his team.

A fascinating discovery for us is finding out that once upon a time, an automotive repair shop was built on the site. Zix Performance came full circle with the street’s history.

POLYGON Project Zix Performance
Challenge
  1. How can we best maximize this property to fit the requirements?
  2. How can the design be recognizable but still feel like it’s part of the street?
  3. What materials are robust enough to withstand the daily activities?

The Process

The company was young and needed a bit of flexibility with their space program. The main priority was having space for the cars and equipment.

To formulate its design, we took cues from the neighboring structures. Adding to that, our building was facing west, so we were very conscious that we needed to protect it from the sun. Manila is notoriously known for it’s flooding so we also had to elevate the structure without sacrificing the functions they needed.

The main materials had to be concrete and steel. They needed to withstand the grease, heat, and other daily activities. At the same time, it can be grungy and still keep its character.
