Kistler Small + White was hired to design three new dealerships for Lithia Motors to be located on Crater Lake Highway in Medford, Oregon. The three dealerships, BMW, Volkswagen and Nissan, would contribute to what would become the "Lithia Auto Mall". Each dealership included a pre-fabricated steel structure for the shop areas and a conventional framed structure for the remaining offices and showrooms spaces. The equipment required for the shop areas was extensive and involved the coordination of gas, oil, air and power lines with elaborate ventilating, lighting and I.T. systems. In addition, these projects afforded the use of very contemporary materials and architectural styles.
