The dark and uninhabited domain of the typical garage is reconceived as a light-filled environment where the automobile can be viewed as an object in nature. The new structure is sheathed in polycarbonate panels and cedar siding, topped by a metal roof. The greenhouse-like building is naturally ventilated through solar powered attic fans.

It is a unique place to nurture the automotive spirit.
