Luxury car manufacturer Aston Martin has launched a design service offering owners and collectors a chance to show off their vehicles in a bespoke garage branded an "automotive gallery" or, at a larger scale, a "complete, luxury retreat".
Interested customers would work with Aston Martin’s own design team, including chief creative officer Marek Reichman, and renowned architects.
As an example, Aston Martin describes a design concept by Obermoser arch-omo architecture that houses a car in the centre of a subterranean circular space, which also contains living and leisure areas.
Marek Reichman said: "Imagine a home or luxury retreat built around your car. Picture creating the ultimate space to showcase your own automotive works of art. This is now achievable with this new offering.
"For the car enthusiast the garage is as important as the rest of the house and a bespoke auto gallery designed by Aston Martin that either focuses on showing off the car or is part of a larger, integrated entertainment space with simulators and such like, takes Aston Martin ownership to the next level."
The Aston Martin design team is currently working on designs for private residential developments.
Sebastien Delmaire, Aston Martin partnerships director, said: "Aston Martin has decades of expertise in staging cars in order to present them at their absolute best but also understands the importance of storage and maintenance of these living, breathing machines.
"Automotive Galleries can even be designed to fit the era if a customer has a heritage car. We are able to cover every requirement, whether it is to display single cars as pieces of automotive art or a full collection of cars in a private museum.
"These spaces provide an opportunity for people to create their own unique world where they can share their passion for cars with their guests. The opportunities are endless."
