One of the biggest challenges of a single-family homeis the garage: its design, size and location. The practice where a multi-car building is often located closer to the street than the front door needs to be changed. The best solution to this problem is to combine it with the residential building into a single ensemble. How to do this can be judged by our specific examples. The translucent door of the car box is illuminated from the inside at night. And in the daytime, when the lights are off, they stand out against the general background, like a wooden screen. And horizontal planks continue along the facade of the house, creating a strong connection between them; they are reinforced on the roof of the garage and lead to the terrace in front of the master bedroom. Here a similar approach is used. Uniform wooden planks adorn the building from the right edge to the left, where the garage is located. So that the construction for four cars did not seem so cumbersome, the architects created a project with four separate gates instead of two large ones. With the same purpose made a light long terrace. This is a modern home - two boxes withglass window openings - includes a room for the garage, the depth of which can be judged by the outer side wall. The unique design demonstrates an example of how author's house designs can combine garages with residential buildings, not only physically, but also stylistically. Construction for cars and the house can be autonomous. But in most cases they have a common roof or outer wall. In this example, they are united by translucent doors of the facade and garage box, which emphasizes the modernity of the design style. This L-shaped structure has a special look. Parking, wide entry would give it a resemblance to the office, if it were not for the ledges, sloping roofs at different levels and close vegetation. Avtogarazh left connected indoor passage with a residential building, which is reflected in the overall design of this complex. Comparing this huge estate of 3350 sq.m. with a village would be an exaggeration. Here we see the box for cars and the arch ... ... an arch that opens the passage, resembling a rural street, between the garage building and the main house. If you carefully look beyond the gate, then to the left of this house you can recognize a new building for cars. A fancy walkway connects the residential building with a garage room, the entrance to which is located behind a sliding sliding door. It should be remembered that in urban buildings is veryIt is difficult to ensure that the architecture of the facade includes village motifs. Sometimes very difficult design decisions are required. In this photo, the garage doors have some similarities with the windows of the second floor and the main entrance. At least, everything is subject to the general logic of building design. With this arrangement of parking in the far part of the estate car stands, as if on the show. In the side of this townhouse there is a narrow garage extension, which is integrated into the general complex of a low-rise building with a wide window on the second floor. The pre-construction area is as important asfor example, garage doors. Green covering in front of the garage, which is created by grass growing between paving stones, is becoming increasingly popular. This allows water not to linger, but to flow or be easily absorbed into the ground. Here the grass grows next to the garage, at the beginning of the usual driveway. This is a sample of how coverings can be mixed on the estate. The same pattern of coverage is visible on the front of the site, which may well be used for parking. Now let's move on to the next group of projects: carports. In the photo - a good combination of garage and carport. This design is typical for South Carolina. And this is an example of a more modern home. On the driveway the car follows from the place of temporary parking under the house to the garage in the far corner of the yard. Here the parking is connected with the house by the roof of the extension. Her supports delineate two parking spaces. Here is another example of how spectacular carports can be. Near the entrance to the dwelling, which is located on the right, is barely visible. This unusual dwelling has a detached wooden structure, which is shown in the photo on the right; it serves as a parking place in front of the house. On closer inspection, the designIt turns out a set of parts under the translucent roof, which provides lighting in the parking lot. This kind of parking is simple and requires less maintenance than a typical suburban garage. Material courtesy of John Hill.
