For many men our garage is a shrine for what we love most, our car. Los Angeles resident Holger Schubert agreed, and thus created this art gallery garage showcasing a beautiful 2009 Maserati Gran Turismo, which he is now the proud owner of after winning the ‘Design Driven’ contest for the Existing Garage category.
Holger Schubert lives in Los Angeles, California, and he loves dream cars. He loves them so much he designed a dream garage for his dream car. Holger Schubert’s garage was designed with two main objectives in mind: to create a pure and restrained minimalist environment that allows one to focus on the car as a piece of art and to create the ultimate experience for the driver to arrive at home. It is situated on the upper floor of another expansion to a 1953 farm style home on a down-slanting slope parcel disregarding the western piece of Los Angeles. Access is by means of a garage scaffold separate from the principle access to the property’s engine court. The 1,200 square foot space gives an assigned spot to the auto and an expansive open zone for a love seat, a slide-away TV, an inherent book hold before an extensive storage space, and in addition a little kitchen, a lavatory and a library. An area of 8? x 12? is made of sandblasted aluminum grating that is set flush into the concrete floors. It hides a 9? long steel ramp, which the driver raises five inches by remote control to create a slope sufficient for the car to roll out and be started outdoors.
“Creating a space to honor and celebrate the car is something that I rarely see,” Schubert expressed, and we couldn’t agree more. Various reasonable building items were utilized—electric screens on the extensive’s outside window dividers help control the atmosphere. 47 sun oriented boards on the rooftop create more than the family’s vitality utilization. The upper floor is warmed only by means of brilliant warming set into the solid floors. The 25? long bookshelf divider is clad with boat lapped segments of homasote, a 100% cellulose fiber board ordinarily utilized for sound protection.
