Combining the Garage with the Home


THE automobile enthusiast thinks of his car as something human. It is only natural, then, that he should plan its "sleeping quarters" with almost as much care as he would his personal residence. In fact the garage should be treated as a part of the homeplace, if it is located on the same plot. It should be constructed of the same material and along the same lines as the house, and should be painted the some color. In the accompanying photographs picturesque effects have been studied. On the left is a clock-tower garage erected on an elaborate suburban estate. Other designs show the garage incorporated in terraces and a hillside, leading to the dwelling. The rounded sheet-metal type is becoming popular, and the all-glass model in the lower left corner of the following page provides abundance of light. Flowers and vines relieve the coldness of concrete or extremely plain structures.
