The latest Jaguar XE has the latest innovation, technology and design. It is a new generation of car and when I heard it has new Advanced Aluminium Architecture, I was immediately intrigued. Anytime beautiful design, construction and efficiency are combined, I take a moment to take a good look. And if it’s good, I share it with you!
Inspired by luxury cars, it got me thinking about where they are kept. It’s great to have a luxury toy, but it’s even better when it’s parked somewhere of equal prestige. So I hit the ground/Google running and came up with 10 of my favourite aspirational garages that I think you gents might like….
1. A space for appreciation
Sure, it’s great to appreciate your car while you’re driving it, but ask any man about his beloved luxury car and he will tell you it’s like a work of art. So why not sit back and relax in a lounge space while you admire it?
Tinkering on cars doesn’t only happen during daylight hours, and this well lit workshop area provides excellent light to work with, anytime of the day. Add some slique storage, and bench space and you have a stylish, workable garage.
A building completely dedicated to your tribe of cars? It’s every mans dream. The added advantage to this garage is the access through multiple doors. No shuffling of cars necessary!
4. Car Lift
For those who are tight on floor space, this is the ultimate car storage solution. Minus the downtime it would take to access the car you want for the day, I think that’s a small price to pay for this clever set up.
5. Interior Design
Nothing says sophistication like timber panelling does and what a refreshing garage interior this is to look at! All these details plus feature ceiling and track lighting take this car space to a whole new premium level. It’s almost a little James Bond like don’t you think?
6. One just isn’t enough
Imagine having so many luxury cars that you have to build another garage?! Enough said. I’ll let you take some time to think about the variety of cars you would have if you could….
Another James Bond-esk set up, this time, concealing the luxury below street level. Not only is this ridiculously cool, but is a great use of space and an incredibly secure way to store your car.
8. Home integration
There is no real reason why if you’re building a house, you can’t opt for the interior style can’t start from the moment you drive in the garage. I know a few men who would love their prized vehicles to be part of the home, literally.
9. The door to car heaven
This garage door is beyond amazing and I can’t decide if I like the design, the timber or the mechanism more. Perhaps its an equal combination that makes this entry a show stopping one.
10. A Zen garage
It’s not often you use the words ‘beautiful’, ‘peaceful’ and ‘garage’ in the same sentence. This architectural wonder definitely balances the yin of the mechanics with the yang of nature. This space nails simplicity and minimalist design.
So there you have it, all these amazing garages inspired by one car that crossed my path. I’d love to know what you think of my choices and which one is your dream garage….
