The worlds of cars and architecture are connected by a love of lines, fluidity, optimization of spaces and, sometimes, spectacular design. So it’s not surprising that they have converged to give rise to “carchitecture.”

This trend, spotted by Penta, consists of integrating the car into the home like any other beautiful object. Through “carchitecture”, owners of Porsches, Maseratis, Aston Martins and other exceptional vehicles can admire them without having to go to their garage. “Clients are choosing to have their cars in their homes or apartments, even at penthouse level, as a celebration of the car as a design object,” architect Etienne Borgos, co-director of Borgos Pieper, told the trade magazine. “It’s taking car ownership to the next level.”
