Architect Marc Thorpe reflects the attitude and the values of the Classic Car Club — founded in London in 1995, with a sleek and auto-inspired design. The establishment's new headquarters are situated at Pier 76 by the Hudson River. A hub for automobile-loving New Yorkers, the new location of the Classic Car Club entertains an industrial and sophisticated aesthetic. Marc Thorpe — a member himself, was definitely the right person to employ for the job. The professional creates a dim-lited space that has definite roots in auto-inspired design, however, it is by no means overbearing.
The new layout of the Classic Car Club includes an 8,000 square foot showroom that can double as an event space, as well as 5,000 square feet of space for private members and a 2,500 square feet of a semi-public park.
