As machines designed for exploring the outside world, cars aren’t really meant to make an appearance indoors. Japan’s Harley in da House project turns this expectation around completely in its union of the garage and the sitting room.

THREE.BALL.CASCADE. Architects is responsible for this unusual residential layout that has the inhabitants’ automobile featured prominently as part of the interior design. A broad wall of sliding glass doors separates the living space from the covered carport, enabling the occupants to open up the two rooms into one.

The benefit of this design decision makes the expansive area of the garage accessible for domestic overflow. After all, Harley in da House designates a quarter of its square footage to the car’s particular home.
