Ferrari 512 BBi “Boxer” at Holger Schubert’s Garage in Los Angeles, The 1,200 square foot space provides a designated spot for the car and a large open area for a couch, a slide-away TV, a built-in bookshelves in front of a large storage room, as well as a small kitchen, a bathroom and a library The house – an old ranch house located in Brentwood – Los Angeles, was redesigned to match the car, the tones, colors, and style – everything was reconsidered. But how do you get the car inside and then back on the streets, as this Ferrari is on a daily base use, not being kept as a museum piece?!? Hogler built a bridge between the house and the road, that features a hydraulic ramp on one end – basically, the car is not turned on when he’s leaving the house but pushed outside by the ramp.
It’s not only a superb, unique, award-winning project – but also quite a bit of expensive – Hogler paid more than 1.5 million dollars for his stunning idea. But in the end, it’s not about money, but satisfaction and the smile that’s written on your face when you see that you have accomplished a dream – your dream. “I enjoy driving the car on winding roads – where it’s not about speed, it’s about being in the right gear, shifting up, shifting down, really getting a feeling for the car”.

In 2009, Maserati shined a spotlight on the place where cars are parked through a nationwide call for entries in their Ultimate Garage competition. Holger Schubert, a renowned architect, and car aficionado took the challenge and designed his garage specifically for this competition. He was awarded first place for the existing garage category. Schubert’s “garage” is an exquisite space that resembles a museum exhibit of the ultimate man cave of the twenty-first century. As an admirer of art and cars, Schubert designed and built the area to be his retreat, with the Ferrari as the focal point.

LOCATION: Los Angeles, CA

STYLE: Modern Contemporary

DESIGNER: Holger Schubert

PRODUCT: Motorized retractable screens

 

The need

 

Schubert required a solution that enabled him to shade the sun and prevent the solar heat from entering the room. In addition, the entire screen had to remain completely hidden when not in use to preserve the architectural integrity of the building.

The Solution

Phantom motorized screens provide solar protection while maintaining the look of the room. The motorized screens were mounted on the exterior of the windows to absorb and dissipate heat and glare before it reaches the glazing. The openness level of the mesh combined with the darker shade help to preserve the view to the outside and maintain a comfortable level of interior light. At night, the screens are completely retracted in recessed housings, and the car is reflected on three 16-foot glass windows.

What makes this project special

The screens on this garage are entrusted to protect the homeowner, architect, and builder- Holger Schubert’s, 1984 Ferrari 512 BBi Boxer- the first mid-engined road car to bear the Ferrari name.
