Petrolicious And The Most Beautiful Garage….. In The World

You’ve probably heard about or seen this garage already. I’ve seen photo-features on a few different websites over the years, but I’ve never seen film of either the garage or the car.

Thankfully, Petrolicious is here to do the job right.

The garage won a competition called Design Driven, sponsored by Maserati, back in 2009. It’s been shown as a car-centric living space in many photo shoots, but it seems to double as Holger Schubert’s design office in this video.

What I love about this:

The garage – It’s absolutely magnificent, combining function and beauty in one minimalist piece.

The car – a Ferrari 512 Berlinetta Boxer. Its classic lines and mad engine combine to make one of the all-time automotive icons. Its relative rarity just makes it all the more alluring.

The guy – Holger Schubert comes across as a pretty down-to-earth guy. He doesn’t need to trumpet his abilities because the space he’s built allows the sheer basic beauty of his work to shine for him. He seems to appreciate the right things and that sort of humility, to me, makes him all the more endearing.

Petrolicious has done it again. Enjoy.

  1. Very nice! But…my first thought seeing that shot of the car facing the window is the scene from the end of Ferris Bueller’s Day Off where the Ferrari is facing the window with the rear axle jacked off the ground with the engine running and Cameron knocks it off the jack and it goes flying out the window. 🙂
