The project Garage is a collective effort in designing and building a space while living on site. The idea was to lose the abstraction between plan and materialisation by developing the project in a 1:1 scale. The adjacent house and barn offered us both accomodation and workshop. Next to common methods to project ideas like building models in scale and drawing sketches, we built 1:1 wireframe models, tried out variantions of facades and developed details as mock-ups. Our knowlede about crafting grew over time, watching youtube videos, getting advice by neighbours and a local woodbuilder. The process took about eight month and was in close collaboration with the client.
