Fancy driving home a car into the living room rather than into a customary garage?

“Holger Schubert’s Design Driven – Maserati’s competition winning garage design — just lets you do so.”

Located on the upper floor of a new addition to a 1953 ranch-style home on a downsloping hillside lot, the garage overlooks the western part of Los Angeles.

Access is via a driveway bridge separate from the main entrance to the property’s motor court.

The 1,200-square-foot space provides a designated spot for the car and a large open area for a couch, a slide-away TV, a built-in book shelf in front of a large storage room, along with a small kitchen, a bathroom and a library.

A number of sustainable building products were used, including the electric screens on the exterior of the large window walls to help control the climate, as well as 47 solar panels on the roof.

All walls are insulated with natural cotton fiber insulation.
