- A quirky garage is accessed off a narrow city alley on a slightly sloping lot. It houses a single car, a work shop, attic playroom and lots of storage.
- The design of the garage fits with the look of the turn-of-the-century architecture of the main house, but with a few unexpected details such as the over-sized window in the attic and the change of siding from one side of the garage door to the other.
Cottage Garage - Alley View
- The design of the garage was considered as viewed from the house. The cottage-like details make it look more like a guest house than a utilitarian garage. It has been tucked into the corner of the back yard where it has become an integral part of the garden.
Cottage Garage - Garden View
- A two-car garage in two parts. The left garage is attached to the house and the right garage is freestanding, but at an angle that skews away from its partner. This creates a pathway between the garages that widens toward the entry and a surprising view of Long Island Sound in the horizon. The two separate garages also appear less imposing than a single garage with one large, wide door.
- The left garage has a second floor attic room (with the dormer windows) which is used as an art /painting studio by the owners.
Old Saybrook Garages
- This carport was designed to be multi-functional for covered parking, yard tool storage and play space. With two small children and limited back yard play area, the carport doubles as a covered play patio.
- The roofline and craftsman details reflect those of the main house.
- Unique lattice design adds interesting texture and allows for light to filter though the tall ceiling. (See trellis detail.)
Capitol Hill Carport
- We are always looking for ways to soften the edges of the utilitarian garage and to give it more visual interest, since a garage is often the first part of a house that you see.
- The exaggerated arch repeats a large half round window on the opposite side of the house. Concealed lighting in the arch illuminates the wall at night.
- The symmetrical roof appears asymmetrical as it overhangs the garage wall to provide a covered walkway from the street to the front porch entrance.
