Mid-Century Modern Freak

Atomic. Futurist. Populuxe. Googie. Modernist. Vintage Pop Culture.

Before & after photos of a car dealership at 4201 Stevens Creek Blvd. Santa Clara, CA. Formerly home to Stevens Creek Buick-Pontiac-GMC. Designed by architect Hollis Logue. circa 1966. Yay or Nay on the MINI renovation? Hopefully the “bones” are still intact underneath all the sheet metal.

    Nay! The renovation looks so generic. They stripped it of it’s unique style, I liked it much better before.

  5. linakasworld said: I would say yay and nay because I like seeing the exposed roof. It gives it more of a texture.The should have placed the Mini sign in a different place.But at the sametime they didn’t demo it then built a different building.I give them props for that
