This guest house was designed for entertainment and high-performance cars. The main level and tower take on the relaxed, traditional feel of the main house with vaulted ceilings, clean lines and exceptional craftsmanship. The tower has an open, airy treehouse feel with something for everyone: a casual office, a cozy space for watching movies, and pullout beds for sleepovers.
The lower-level garage is decidedly more modern. The concrete and steel-clad space contains a workshop, car storage and lounge complete with kitchen, bath and entertainment area. Ceilings are clad in sleek acoustic panels. Steel walls cleverly conceal water and air hoses, retractable power for recharging electric cars, storage shelves and a sound system. The lounge’s velvet curtain, rolling metal kitchen doors and casual furniture help tune this flexible space for a variety of uses.
