When you’re pressed for space as they are in Japan, you have to get a little creative. This 8 unit apartment complex built on a very small lot has a motorcycle garage in every apartment.
There’s a central driveway with a curved turnaround in the center of the building with garage doors from all of the 3 story apartments encircling the drive. The building is a concrete and steel structure with very modern appearance, a bit too sterile for my taste, but a great example of efficient use of space.
Every serious motorhead likes the idea of having his vehicles inside, protected from the weather and thieves, plus having a convenient workspace close by. This is definitely cozy and close.
As in a previous post about the Japanese magazine Garage Life, it’s obvious they’ve become quite adept at fitting vehicles into their homes and apartments in a country where space is at a premium, but here in the US, we tend to do things a little bigger. Interesting.
Thanks for the tip, CW!
