  2. 2. DESIGN GUIDE ORG Design Guide 27CONFIDENTIAL Do not copy. © 2006 Windquest Companies Inc. 03/06 While the garage is a large collection space and an area for parking automobiles, in many ways it is an informal entryway to the home. Functionality is important, but so is appearance and accessibility. Take into account the climate conditions in your area. If temperatures are moderate year-round a large array of applications are appropriate for the garage. Consider the space when vehicles are parked inside. How many vehicles need to fit here? Are they compact cars or SUVs? Be sure to accommodate for opening car doors. Avoid placing doors and closures in locations that will hinder movement in the space once cars are inside. Utilize the area next to parked cars for storing items such as spare lumber and seasonal tools such as rakes. Elevate storage to prevent exposure to moisture: rain, snow melt and other spills. Consider the area immediately outside the door into the home as a “transitional zone”—a spot to place groceries while unlocking the door, grabbing a yard coat or changing from boots to shoes. Consider surfaces and hooks that might optimize this space. Create a “need it now” zone in the garage.You can support this need by placing often-used items such as extra food, brooms, etc. Place frequently used yard maintenance items close to garage doors (rakes, brooms, leaf bags, shovels, bird food, to avoid risking car scratches and dings. Create “passion centers” based on the homeowner’s favorite activities such as gardening, carpentry, fly fishing, etc. Place children’s items low to the ground, shared items in the middle and adult things at the top— including dangerous items such as chemicals and powders.
