Car dealerships create a light and airy atmosphere for their customers with large glass box designs. Unfortunately this brings with it issues of overheating and excessive glare from the sun. This can cause customers to be uncomfortable, not enjoy their time there, and possibly even want to leave before making a purchase. Sun glare can also distract salespeople and reflect off computer screens.
Removing excess heat from a car dealership can be costly, both financially and environmentally, as air-conditioning needs to be running for a majority of the year. Traditionally it has been difficult to combat these problems any other way. Maintaining high light levels and retaining visibility into the car dealership are key concerns, therefore blinds and awnings are not practical. They can ruin the ascetic of the building and block customers view into the showroom.
