So this is it. You’ve made it and finally purchased that luxury sports car you always wanted. The blood, sweat, and sacrifice finally paid off. Now, all you want is to drive the damn thing. And when you’re not driving, admire it at all times. Well, architect and designer Yoshiaki Yamashita knows the feeling, which is why he built out a Garage Terrace House for that specific purpose.

The house was built for a car enthusiast with a wall of floor to ceiling windows looking into the garage, keeping the owner’s four-wheeled baby on display at all times. Located adjacent to the kitchen and living area, anyone visiting the home will no doubt be in awe at the spectacle staring them down while fetching a glass of water. Raised timber ceilings in conjunction with natural light bring the space to life as well and expand the otherwise cozy 1,800 square foot apartment. Let’s just hope the owner keeps a clean garage like we’re sure the rest of us all do diligently.
