Check out This Gear Heads Third Floor Garage
A lot of gear heads dream and dream about their perfect garage. It’s one of those places where we feel safe and completely cut off from the rest of the world. A place where we can put our car and know it will Ok. A garage where we an do our own work on our car or cars. If being a gear head was a religion then the garage is definitely, our temple, or place of worship. Everyone’s is different, and all of us try and to create our own version of serenity. I know when I walk into mine, that smell of epoxy flooring paint and oil grease let’s me know I have entered a place where Heaven meets Earth. Many gear heads have areas in the garage where other gear heads can come by and relax, hang out, maybe watch a game or two. A temple must be able to accommodate many followers.
Enter Holger Schubert, a man who is such a gear head that he decided to build his temple on the third floor of his house and connect it via bridge to a nearby raised road. Nothing is out of the ordinary for a true gear head. His garage consists of 3 spaces, a design studio, a sitting area with TV, and a place for his car. The design section is made up of computer screens and a giant desk, for Schubert’s work. The sitting area has a few couches and a flat screen TV set on a tract, setup on floor to ceiling windows that create a view of LA County from the hills. So when he doesn’t want to watch TV and enjoy the view, he simply rolls it out of the way. Holger Schubert has had a Ferrari 512BBi and a Maserati in his temple.
None have created anything like this, this is why its award winning, but what can you expect from an architect. Holger Schubert has won awards such as Architectural Digest’s Design Driven contest for best garage. Check out the pics below.
