Design a facade for a 1948 commercial building.
The facade is 99 feet long and approximately 15 feet high. It faces southwest and the eastern corner has an existing entryway. The entryway corner is angled 45 degrees beginning at 92 feet.
There is a suspended awning that wraps part of the way around the building, extending 31 feet along the eastern side of the building.
The interior ceiling is 9 feet high.
For Google street view, the address is 11 Harrison Avenue, Panama City, Florida.
The building is currently a single space but will be divided into 5 spaces.
Unit A will be the easternmost and E the westernmost.
Units A and E will be 22 feet wide, units B, C and D will be 18.3 feet wide.
Unit A has no windows facing southwest and will need windows installed.
Units B-E will each have a single 36 inch entry door to the side of the unit and 8 to 10 foot wide windows.
I would like transoms above the doors but I'm not sure the interior ceiling height of 9 feet will allow this.
For units C-E either straight slant awnings or suspended awnings (One for each unit) would be preferable but the existing awning will cover unit A and part of unit B. Perhaps a small awning could be placed over the door of unit B.
I don't know whether to delineate each space with a different paint color or whether to paint the whole facade one color. See Google street view at 311 Worth Avenue, Palm Beach, Florida as an example.
The building is in a historic downtown district and designs must be approved by a board, so the remodel should be consistent with the age and style of the building.
