My Dream Garage
I suppose it’s a little weird to have a ‘dream garage’, seeing as I don’t own a car. But being such a rebel I will not only hold onto that dream, I’ll just go ahead and share it here. Haters gonna hate.
I’m sure most of you Trekkies will recognize the design of this garage: it’s based on the hangar that the Enterprise was parked in at the beginning of Star Trek: The Motion Picture. I’m pretty sure the film opened with Kirk and Scotty flying around this hangar for 36 minutes before finally boarding their ship, but it’s been awhile since I saw it.
In addition to the steel structure and array of LED lights the garage is lined with glass, making it a greenhouse-like structure to protect your vehicle against the elements.
There is also a door in the front that opens like your typical garage door:
You’ll have to excuse my use of the Tumbler Batmobile for this post, it was either that or the Ecto-1 (I need more 3D model cars at my disposal). I believe this garage would be ideal for a luxury car, preferably one that is white or silver to echo the Enterprise. Whatever vehicle you park inside, this garage was made to show off your ride — it’s essentially a big display case.
The Tumbler is a pretty big vehicle, so it’s difficult to get a sense of scale here, but essentially the current design is a wide-bay single car garage. This design can be scaled up to accommodate more cars.
This structure could also be used as the entrance for an underground car elevator, a car wash bay, or another fancy sign for a dealership.
So that’s my dream garage (and greenhouse I suppose!). I should do a series of dream houses/rooms sometime down the road. That said I did make a dream hockey pad on the other blog which can you check out here.
