Let’s talk signage. Have you ever been searching for a garage sale only to get lost along the way? And then get so frustrated that you turn the car around and head to another sale–one that guides you there with clearly labeled signs?
Beautiful interiors with separate ramps for both entering and leaving mean there is little room for getting lost. The transparent nature of the building ensures that you never feel claustrophobic; like in the case of many other old parking lots. Beautiful and brilliant!
This parking lot designed with a sense of flair by Elliott and Associates Architects is a fine example of meshing together modern design with the classic parking garage structure.
Pots were placed out in the driveway. This made them easier to load into cars once they sold. My aunt even put some faux greenery in one of her pots to show shoppers just how beautiful it could be when filled with plant life. A nice touch don’t you think?!
But more often than not garages are not spaces shy of natural light and by replacing the old garage door with translucent glass panels or sliding glass doors you can improve ventilation further. Start small before you commit more extensively to transform the garage into a stylish home office.
Consider so they’re easy to label (and easy to see). Plus if they’re concealed in baggies they won’t be likely to wander off.
