    Hidden garage - GIF

    Hidden garage. Ponsonby, New Zealand. Home is owned and designed by architect Jonathan Smith of Matter Architects. Is that another car stored above the one backing out?

    It does look like another car above on a rack of some kind. Doesn't look like a conventional electrically/chain driven lift though...almost looks like pipe and only see one on each side. They do those systems in Europe and Japan where parking is a premium and the big VW plant in Germany has a pretty amazing carousel stacking blingymabob.

    I like the in ground track for the fence and its smooooth operation, but wonder if it is self cleaning for winter time.

    That is really neat. Yes, I do believe it is a two car garage.
