The Wolf HouseContemporary Garage, Melbourne

Wolf House is a contemporary home designed for flexible, easy living for a young family of 5. The spaces have multi use and the large home has a connection through its void space allowing all family members to be in touch with each other. The home boasts excellent energy efficiency and a clear view of the sky from every single room in the house.

This is an example of a large contemporary one-car workshop in Melbourne. —  Houzz

    Collector’s editionYou can’t help but develop serious garage envy with this chic space (pictured above and below). Serving as a home office as well as a garage, a polished concrete floor steps down directly onto a warm timber expanse that delineates a spacious dining and living area from the business end of the property. One can only imagine that at meal times it must bring the owner great joy to see his or her sleek set of wheels waiting for the day’s outing.See more of this project

    The garageMost garages don’t look like this one. They usually have a concrete floor with oil stains and piles of junk lining the walls. As a designer, I can never understand why the garage always receives the biggest space and the most prominent at the front of the house. Early in my career, I experimented with changing the finishes in a garage that allowed for the car to be housed, but when not in use could be used for other purposes. This required a rethink on the traditional garage such as lining the walls with plaster with perhaps a coloured feature wall, tiles on the floor, and feature lighting. In this garage, the concrete floor is still there but it’s polished. Creative lighting and furniture add drama and the feature wall is made up of bookshelves. If the car isn’t parked in position, the space becomes available for other uses.TIP: Always use materials and finishes that are compatible for car storage and other uses. An example is polished concrete or floor tiles. It stands to reason that carpet or floorboards would not be appropriate.
