Batman’s Garage Is Real, And It’s Spectacular
The world’s most spectacular garages are often so incredible because they’ve been shoehorned in where they’re least expected.
Australian Architects Molecule had a similar challenge: Melbourne homeowners who loved the look of their built-in-1928 brick mansion but wanted a total renovation, including space for a collection of cars. But it soon clicked: Bruce Wayne’s garage from The Dark Knight could be recreated, underneath the front garden.
Its entrance? A Batcave-style hydraulic “lid” that when lowered looks like part of the adjacent tennis court, and when lifted provides access for the owner’s stable of sports cars. Continuing the theme, the architecture firm simply names this project The Wayne Residence.
I spy a Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG Coupé in there: let’s hope the owner calls it his “Batwing”.
