There is so much unused space, especially in the USA, space that was created for one purpose but with fresh eyes, can be used for living space. In many large cities, you will find parking garages, multilevel, covered enclosures meant for parking cars, how about taking the parking garages that are not being used and turn them into homes for people? That’s what this experiment is all about.
Combining tiny homes with a parking garage gives a wonderful space a new life, it lends protection from most of the weather, but it allows light and air to come in. There is space for the tiny homes as well as communal spaces for gardening, gathering, eating and the such.
Think of it as high rise apartments without the apartments, it’s much more people friendly, I think it’s a great concept, one that I hope takes off. Enjoy the 3 videos below.
