PRIVATE CAR DISPLA AND UNDERGROUND CARPORT

B29 Architects as Architects

This garage is situated in the rustic village of Tannay, in Switzerland. Designed to host the client`s beloved vehicles, it offers various spaces with different qualities, maintaining a dynamic but discrete and elegant presence in the context. The project is a sequence of three separate spaces: The entrance, an enclosed space covered by a long roof and a double underground parking. The linear, 15-metre-long pitched roof is modelled on a 19th-century stable block, but instead of the traditional timber bracing, the structure is made of reinforced concrete and the walls are made of brick; based on the concept that nowadays, the racehorses are replaced by powerful engines and special custom cars.. The pre-stressed V-beam was designed to resist winter snow falls and strong winds. The roof creates an open but covered exterior space in front of the garage offering more spatial options without excessive construction. In the details, an industrial function-oriented style gives to the space a special character that blends interestingly with the rural enviroment.
