Outline

Our car ports perform as standard, while blending beautifully in with the look of the modern home. By reimagining the structure and eliminating ornament and noise, we have created a uniquely minimalist port. This is thanks to the use of aluminum extrusion in the roof, rendering it a thin, flat, elegant surface. By flattening the roof, the port is organized into a space that imparts a sense of both security and openness. In our minimalist design, gutters and bolts are invisible from beneath the roof, while components have been reduced and ease of construction improved.
