Pleasant Valley Ford

Most car dealerships reflect the mechanics of their industry: cold, stuffy, and crowded. Richard Turlington Architects changed this tired narrative and designed a comfortable, modern, and welcoming home for the Pleasant Valley Ford facility in rural New York.


Fulfilling our client’s dream of designing a building that “doesn’t look like every other dealership,” we incorporated traditional building materials of wood, stone, and standing seam roofs to channel the desired feel and create a building suited to its rural context. Rather than mimicking vernacular models, our design utilizes traditional materials in timeless, geometric forms to bring together the new showroom and maintenance area.
