This project turned an exposed car deck into a contained garage with a clean and simple form. Use of a limited material and colour palette enables the corrugated iron roofing and cladding along with the pine ply internal lining to create a simple modern look that contrasts and compliments the foliage which borders the site. Pine trusses are exposed internally with sections of semi opaque polycarbonate roofing above to filter light down into the space. Windows are placed to capture the view and tree life. Garages can be nice places too…
