Mullin Automotive Museum

T

he Mullin Collection Automotive Museum is a complete design of an existing 45,000 square foot, typical tilt-up concrete warehouse, which will be built into both a public and private automotive museum for the world’s largest collection of Bugatti and French race cars of the 1930s. The design of the exterior includes a large entry canopy made of windshields, large graphic screens and a corner signage component with stainless steel and LED lighting.

The building’s many sustainable green building features include monitors for daylight and natural ventilation, a solar photovoltaic roof, a green roof with a new elevator penthouse and wind turbines. Interiors include a theater, gift store, private club, archives, offices, as well as display areas for cars and automotive artifacts.
