Innovative uses for garage doors
Although the garage door is almost always used in conjunction with a garage, occasionally they can be used in other architectural arrangements.
Australian Designers have been looking at ways in which they can limit the feel of interior and exterior environments. Traditionally a bi-fold door or a sliding door may have been used, but more commonly these designers have found the garage door to be superior due to the unprecedented use of space they offer.
Below, ABi have looked at some examples where the traditional window or door has been replaced with a garage door.
Palm Beach House, NSW by Don Taylor Design Associates
The Black Box, NSW by Tina Tziallas Architecture Studio
Metal Shutter Houses, New York by Shigeru Ban
Under Armor shop front, Baltimore by A+I architects
These are just some of the examples where garage doors are used in a range of different applications. Do you happen to know of any other applications where a garage door has been used when it isn’t connected to a garage?
