The proposed project seeks to create a prototype gas station/convenience store for the Dundee neighborhood in Omaha, Nebraska, that addresses local residents’ desire to have a site specific gas station/convenience store that integrates into their neighborhood. The project will use architectural solutions in the form of building materials and spatial organization concepts to allow the prototype to better accommodate needs of local users who enjoy enjoy the services provided by thew present store yet find many flaws in the design of the current station. The project focuses on safety guidelines concerning the gas tanks stored below the pumps and realizes that the proposed building type is heavily influenced by profit margins. Architectural solutions can be used to integrate this building type, with its suburban-originated designs, into urban areas. Mentor: William Borner
