Stanton Dahl have supported the Lane Group of Dealerships, providing design, planning submissions, construction documentation & Builder support for a number of facility upgrades over the past 5 years. The Lane Group have been operating in the Peel Region of Western Australia for more than 65 years.
Stanton Dahl was asked by the client to upgrade a very “tired” existing Ford facility and develop it into a 2-brand facility. Challenges working with an existing low Structural roof system & numerous structure columns that compromised the new facility requirements required ingenuity in the resultant resolution. The required Brand corporate identity for the exterior façades involved increasing the height & presence of the two showrooms whilst maintaining the low roofing structure. The project was designed & staged to maintain full operation of the facilities during construction.
The Ford showroom has recently been completed by Moore Constructions and the Lane Group are extremely excited to be working in their new facility.
For the first time Stanton Dahl produced animations that have been of great aid in the Lane Group understanding the overall design, it’s context with the urban streetscape as well as providing a full appreciation of how the interior functions & looks.... Show More Show Less

Northway Honda consists of Honda’s new flagship showroom and service centre in Bundoora, VIC
Located on a prominent greenfield site in the northern Melbourne suburb of Bundoora, Northway Honda was recommended by Honda Australia to engage Stanton Dahl in mid-2008. Featuring Australia’s first dealership to incorporate all of Honda’s current Corporate Image Branding Elements, Northway Honda has come to represent the ideal facility for Honda’s Rollout Program.
The dealership consists of a cylindrical two-storey showroom at the front of the site with a full-service workshop at its rear, bridged by an administrative core over two stories. Site circulation is centrally organised, diagonally across the site to ensure ease of access, efficient vehicular movement and customer safety.
The showroom’s innovative design maximises exposure on the prominent corner intersection and opens the dealership to all aspects of customer arrival. Vehicular movement in the double-storey showroom is achieved with an open scissor lift – the rest of its kind in an automotive showroom in Australia.
The outcome of Northway Honda proves the successful cooperation among Honda, the dealer and Stanton Dahl in delivering a top-tier dealership (level 5) and an exemplary model to the rollout of future Honda dealerships nationwide.... Show More Show Less
