Double Duty

What looks like a modest one-car garage on the outside can also function as an extension of the home. 

Hidden Gem

Not only meant to house a vehicle and bikes, the garage can also function as a hangout spot, creative space or jam room.

Impressive Ikat

Following the handmade movement popular in Asheville, an ikat design was free-handed and painted black to give the multifunctional garage an artistic lounge-like feel.

All In The Details

Inspired by grandiose local landmark the Biltmore Estate, faux snakeskin covered lambrequins with iron nail heads add a stylish sculptural element to the garage windows.

Glamorous Globes

Three suspended globe chandeliers transform a simple garage into a sophisticated space. “I really wanted beautiful dramatic lighting in here,” says interior designer Brian Patrick Flynn.

Capture Your Imagination

A stool and easel transform the garage into an art studio, while a farmhouse buffet stores art supplies, car washing gear and everything else that would otherwise clutter the garage.

Unique Lighting

An industrial fan lamp adds to the creative lighting story found throughout the space, fusing art and function.

Multifunctional Space

Whether into the arts, recreation or both, the garage is equipped with everyone’s favorite hobbies in mind.

Skate Away

Because Asheville is a pedestrian-friendly town, skateboards are mounted directly to the wall for quick grab and go.

Take a Spin

Sporty and stylish electric bikes are perfect for cruising up and down hilly Asheville roads.

Sedan Taillights

New camera technology can sense lane markings, detect parked cars, pedestrians and other objects and can even help steer and apply brakes to keep the car from leaving the road.

Sedan Interior

In addition to Bluetooth audio integration and navigation, an advanced system can connect you to the content you want, from streaming favorite music to a 24-hour concierge service.

Sedan Control Panel

A sleek, intuitive button panel controls the stop and go while also creating open space between the driver and passenger.

Sedan Wheel

An advanced all-wheel steering system increases agility and stability while cornering, changing lanes or braking.

Garage Entry

A door in the garage leads directly into the lower level mudroom, an efficient catch-all space for shoes, bags and outerwear before entering the common areas.

Grab and Go

Existing wood, used to frame the house, was whitewashed to clad the wall and bench area. An active gear closet stores all outdoor clothes for grabbing before exiting the house.

Take a Seat

Pretty yet hardworking, the mudroom features a cozy bench covered in a weather-resistant material and flood-proof concrete floors.

Hang Out to Dry

Hooks are placed throughout the mudroom for simple storage of bags, scarves and coats.

Arresting Ascension

Stairs from the mudroom lead past the eye-catching art wall and into the great room.
