Project Description

2011 RADA

Light Commercial / Merit

On a rough-and-dirty construction site, this bespoke job trailer creates just the right image for its owner, a high-end contractor. Built on a stock flatbed, the wood frame is insulated, drywalled, and clad in sheets of recycled paper-resin. The equally sleek interior contains radiant heat under slate flooring, built-in casework, and low-voltage lighting. "It sets an impression and raises the expectations for subs and suppliers," says David D. Salmela, FAIA.

"The wheels, the hubcaps—everything is beautiful," a judge agreed, "and it provides a nice identity for the company."
