Autohaus, USA, by Matt Fajkus Architecture

Built for a car collector in Austin, Texas, Autohaus’ entire ground floor is given over to a garage and workshop.

Floor-to-ceiling glass walls frame the parking space, and the gabled living area cantilevers over an outdoor parking space to frame and shelter the car below.

House in Takamatsu, Japan, by FujiwaraMuro Architects

FujiwaraMuro Architects designed a single opening in the bunker-style facade of this house in Takamatsu to draw attention to the owner’s sports car.

The all-white home is otherwise highly private. Inside, a glass wall gives a full view of the car from a downstairs living room.

Smilgu House, Lithuania, by Plazma Architecture Studio

A glass-walled corner of the ground floor of this house in Vilnius puts the owner’s car proudly on display.

Timber cladding helps the house blend with the trees, making the garage a focal point of the front facade. To the rear, the house has huge double-height windows looking out over the garden.

Their little car can be driven straight into the open-plan house, which can be divided into separate rooms using brightly-coloured curtains

Pagoda House by I/O architects

Pagoda House takes its name from the owner’s beloved vintage Mercedes Pagoda, which has pride of place in a glass-walled garage.

The house is partially submerged into its sloping site, with the classic car located at the bottom of a timber staircase and framed against a raw concrete back wall.

This house in Bangkok for an avid car collector has space for six cars to be parked two abreast in a glass-walled garage on the ground floor.
