Bike Garage

Brooklyn, NYC

This project is meant to engage a front yard in it’s neighborhood and elaborate on the function of the Brooklyn ‘stoop’. This protected storage area for a family’s collection of bicycles is scaled to the adjacent stoops.

It settles into its surroundings by retaining an appropriate scale for the historical neighborhood fabric. At the same time, it’s presence and modern materiality proudly announce the family’s progressive commitment to bicycle transportation and create surprising utility in what is often an unloved garden space.
