Orange County ABC Retail Store
Summit provided Architectural Design, Land Development, Landscape Architecture, Structural Design, and Construction Administration services for this 7,350 SF ABC Liquor Store (4,275 SF Sales Floor) in Orange County, NC. Located near the prominent intersection of I-85 and I-40, this ongoing project required us to balance a store’s commercial functions with a warehouse’s industrial functions.
The owner of this project had several key design requests for our team, including the use of transparency at the front entry to incorporate natural lighting, which we achieved with near floor-to-ceiling clerestory windows. We also satisfied the owner’s request for a prominent entry feature delineating the sales floor from the warehouse area to keep customer traffic moving in the right direction.
