Contemporary Garages

It's travel month so we thought a look at some interesting garages with contemporary designs might be fitting. These remind us a bit of the mother of all contemporary garages: the glass one in Ferris Beuller's Day Off!

We love that the second garage is not enclosed, which makes it a little less cumbersome to the front facade of the house (don't you hate it when the garage takes over the front of a home?). We also love the lantern effect of the translucent garage doors in image 3.

What do you think? Do you like a contemporary garage or is a garage always just a garage?
