Architecture Inspired by Automotive Styling
Harvey August Design / Build International 831-917-6392


Above: Architecture Inspired by Automotive Styling...            Above: 1955 Chevy Nomad...The car's sweet tail section,
in this case inspired by the 1955 Chevy Nomad...                    graceful curves, and honest lines, flowing from it's rear
I call this piece "mileage" ...Functioning as an                           fenders into the delicately molded rear lights...
Exterior Sculptural Door Surround with spires...                      attractive then as now...


Who wants to kick their Architecture into Overdrive? If so, read on……a sculptural presentation which is some 13.5 feet in length, fashioned after my synthesis of the vintage 1955 Chevy Nomad pictured above…and is my attempt to transfer a vehicular quality of energy (form and sub form combinations) into an architectural project…and into architecture more broadly…transforming the entire house inside and out into a vehicular presentation...Inspiration from new or vintage cars.


Sculptural door surround 13.5 feet long…to 5 feet high…outcropping overhead to 6.5 feet from the wall. Redwood and Ebony 2007…suspended over French doors leading into Master Bedroom…provides an example of automotive styling as applied to a standard architectural element…based on or evolved from my design synthesis of a 1955 Chevy Nomad architecture with an automotive look and feel.

More about the Chevy…this ensemble of curves and beauty has stuck with me…Reemerging in 2007 as the automotive / architectural element that you see above. Now, that’s “mileage”…
