Transparent Garage In This Kyoto Home Is Most Stylish Thing Ever

Share |

You’d be right not to keep a garage on the list of your most stylish places in the house but this one actually looks amazing. Designed by an architect Yoshiaki Yamashita this modern dwelling in Kyoto belongs to a couple of car enthusiasts. In his design Yamashita decided to show off the brightly-colored vehicle through a transparent wall that divided the garage from the kitchen.

The result is quite unexpected. Unlike in this Garage Loft the car is standing outside the living space but it’s not completely shut out and hidden away. Besides, the garage can double as a covered terrace where the owners can keep their plants or even create an entire garden if they choose to.

The semi-transparent walls in both garage and kitchen allow plenty of light in solving the problem that makes every other garage a dark uninviting place.
