Garage Conversion by Graypants

Garage is a residential cabin converted by Seattle-based design studio Graypants from a post World War II garage in Vashon island.

The building is a careful balance of preserving memory of the existing structure and repurposing materials extracted from it.

Architects: Graypants
Location: Vashon, King County, Washington, USA

All glass wall attached to the wood strip, the house almost transparent, the interior living space integrated in the center, revealing hidden beds beneath wooden floor panels that fold into seating, a century-old wood burning stove was retained.

Inspiration from architect:

The garage aims to make design mysterious. Making mundane tasks of our lives into opportunities that create beauty through joyful interaction. Providing a canvas that allows imagination to make new old and old new. The new becoming a theatre to watch the old gradually fade away. This space wasn’t about ordinary… it was about touching on boundaries of what is ordinary.
