BEFORE: Packed with Clutter

This garage was like many others: raw, cluttered and underutilized. When the city denied an application to expand the main residence for an office and additional living space, designer Susan Jay suggested converting the garage.

AFTER: Midcentury Style

In addition to a work and entertaining space, a stationary metal-and-glass garage door was installed to allow maximum natural light. Other features Jay included are radiant heat between the new concrete floor and commercial carpet, a wall air conditioning unit, a new sliding entrance to the rear, a large picture window, midcentury lighting, and custom cabinetry for storage and media equipment.
