garage means protection for your favourite toy: the car. An additional roof over your head and shelter from a storm for garden parties and an excellent venue for a late night poker game. But even if you don’t use your garage in the proposed manner, you can still make good use of it for other hobbies: a separate living area, a workshop or simply storage. An attractive garage can detract from an attractive house though, so today we've collected some excellent examples of modern garage design for you to take a look at.

Integrated garage

Like the outstretched arm of the design, this garage extends itself as part of the lower level of this house well and fluently; not disturbing the style. The heavy looking base that is the stone ground floor gives the upper level a floating feel- very nice.

Modern garage

Neutral colours, steel, glass, concrete, straight lines, rectangular forms: this Luxembourgian house breaths modern design. The angles play well off the slope of the drive, creating a smooth ramp downwards and a smooth rise upwards. The plain and neutral colouring used in the surfaces provide a suitable extension for the surrounding house concept too.

Out with the old, in with the new

The expert team of architects Reichel Schlaier was commissioned to build a garage which should provide sufficient space for two cars, bikes and all garden equipment. However, the builders had other ideas, for they wanted have a garage made of wood and one of a kind. No freshly cut trees were used in this design, interestingly enough, and all wood used was the residue of other projects.

Minimalist garage

A garage to match the style of your house. A trendy, clean lined, reduced concrete exterior upon an angular frame that gives us more of an idea about the options available to us.

Car ports

If you don't have the space, or simply enough money, to  build your own garage, a car port can be just as good looking as it can be practical. This Eco curves port looks great and offers a large roof area under which to take shelter; should it be necessary. A fine quality timber construction that would suit most homes.
