1. Retro Space
With added modern equipment, new electrical updates, and basic renovations, a 1950’s Atlantic gas station transforms into a small, but effective, auto repair shop.
Although the 1,600-square-foot Pennsylvania shop, West Point Auto Works, has only been around for a little over a year and a half, the space innovation and clean design makes this shop a standout.
Before owner Jesse Brocious and his team opened West Point Auto Works, the vintage gas station hadn’t been touched in over 40 years.
“When we first got in, we pretty much had to hot-wire the lifts to go up and down,” Brocious says.
The gas pumps had been removed, but not much else in the space had been handled. The remodeled retro space now includes a renovated shop floor, a beautifully clean waiting area, repaved parking lot, and updated signage.
The original blueprints of the gas station remain on the waiting room wall to pay homage to its past life.
