Car dealership "Polestar Space" in Stuttgart
A presentation area for cars not bound by usual conventions.
Assignment and requirements
The “Polestar Space” in Stuttgart is to set new standards for conventional car dealerships. The modernly designed exhibition space especially demanded a uniform and, above all, high-quality appearance from the floor coating.
Particularities and challenges
Large window fronts give the entrance of the “Space” an open and inviting character. Therefore, the flooring had to be able to withstand incoming sunlight without any problems. High levels of public or vehicle traffic from cars entering and exiting the area were taken into account in the planning, as was chemical resistance to motor oil, to aqueous solutions, to diluted acids and alkalis, or an uncomplicated floor maintenance.
With System G3 KLB INDUSTRIAL LOW-VOC PU Comfort Sealed, the requirements for a new generation of car presentation areas can be fully met. The clear and impressive look of the spacious room is accompanied by a continuous, jointless floor design. This puts the focus entirely on the cars on display and underlines the sales-promoting effect of the space. The showroom thus becomes an experience that remains in the visitor’s memory for a long time.
In addition to its visual appeal, the floor system offers easy cleaning. Even chemical substances such as engine oil or water-based solutions can be easily removed and therefore pose no danger to the floor.
Due to the possible release of plasticisers, the tyres of permanently parked vehicles must be underlaid (in this case, Plexiglas sheets were used).
