Video: A Spy-style Garage Was Designed For The Electric Hummer. It Has An Elevator And A Glass Roof
Californian architect Kelly Whistler designed a concept building designed in the same style as the GMC Hummer EV electric pickup truck. According to Robb Report, the pickup itself in this project is assigned the main shaping role: from a car, it becomes an interior item.
Designed by Kelly Whistler, the house is replete with hidden visual references to the exterior of the Hammer itself - from the original illuminated garage entrance doors to the transparent roof sections. The materials used in the concept building are designed to blend harmoniously with the surrounding landscape: for an unnamed reason, the Hummer Concept Garage is located in the desert.
- The futuristic two-story building has an impressive catwalk lift. With its help, the electric pickup can be raised to the second level, which is made residential. According to Whistler herself, the electric car does not emit harmful emissions, and this factor could radically change the approach to car storage. "I wanted to re-invent the principle of interaction with our cars, which are an integral part of everyday life," - quoted the publication of the statement of the architect. The Whistler building integrates the electric vehicle into the living space so that the residents of the garage can "truly enjoy its beauty."
It is not specified whether the project will be implemented in real life or will remain something like the architect's design reflections on the topic of electric cars.
- Last fall, sketches of another building in the automotive style were published - a skyscraper, in the development of which the designers of the Porsche brand took part. An unusual house with a Ferris wheel on the 52nd floor is planned to be built in Kuala Lumpur.
