Though a one or two-car garage will typically suffice for the average automotive and/or motorcycle owner, serious collectors often face the dilemma of needing a facility that can securely house their stable, while still allowing them to display and enjoy it. And this was the crux of the idea behind Jost Architects’ Über Shed 2: a modified steel warehouse that’s been transformed into something of the ultimate vehicular showpiece.
Built by Sunset Constructions, the Über Shed 2 marks the second rural building transformation that Jost has designed on Victoria, Australia’s Mornington Peninsular. Despite the original corrugated steel structure being only four years old, the owner wasn’t satisfied with how it was housing his collection of cars and motorcycles. So, Jost treated the building to a thorough redesign, bestowing it with fully-finished living quarters, decks, a billiards room, lounge, a massive farm equipment bay, and a garage designed to accommodate the owner’s trio of cars, Army Jeep, a baker’s dozen motorcycles, and a myriad of miscellaneous memorabilia. The exterior walls have also been replaced by a modern amalgamation of traditional farmhouse-style timber boards, spaced vertical wooden slats, and floor-to-ceiling windows.
