Balconies for cars

I first read about the idea of the Loft Car in one of Nicolas’ post. German architects Manfred Dick (who sought a patent for his concept) and Johannes Kauka want to help drivers park their car right on their appartment’s balcony.


You’d drive the vehicle straight on into the car elevator (that promises to be able to fit a Bentley), push the button, and off you you park outside your penthouse (on the “carloggia”!) The architects point out that safety and comfort are two of the major advantages that come with this garage concept: it’s easier to unload the groceries, your car is always under your eyes, your family is better protected from kidnapping or carjacking attempts, etc.
