Basically the idea is that you drive your car in to a big lift, which then takes it up to your flat and you drive it out on to the balcony to park, you can see how this work from the pictures below. Now if you’ve ever felt that your car should sleep inside, not in the garage, then CarLoft has just the loft apartment for you. A glass wall separates your elevated garage from your living quarters yet still allows for friends and family to appreciate your wheels. Plans are underway to have CarLoft living spaces built in such European cities as Berlin, Frankfurt and Hamburg, among others. The lofts, which range in size from 2,411 sq ft to 5,802 sq ft, start at EUR 450,600 ($536,844 US).

    ...how cool it that :-D

    I could have done with something like this when I lived in a flat! Went down to go to work one day and some cheeky swine had pinched 2 of my wheels! They were however nice enough to put my car on bricks, and leave the bolts in 2 nice little piles where the wheels should have been: What a sweetie lol!

    cooooooooool ... shopping straight out the boot into kitchen :thumbsup:

    Don't think it could cope with the weight of my Phantom and Maybach.

    Would be great except when the lift breaks down.... won't be able to use the car until the lift is fixed obviously. Also, would there be parking spaces on the ground floor too? if not then that means using the lift every time you come back, even if you're popping home for just 30 mins or so.
    Good idea in principle, just not sure how it would work in reality.

    Don't they have a similar thing in japan for storing cars?

    I can just see all the youtube videos of people driving it through their lounge or off the back end by missing the brake.

    surely this would just add to the rush hour delay?

    good idea...esp in Germany a lot of people live in flats and this would work.

    btw those flats look very nice!
