Jérémie Buchholtz wanted an affordable apartment in Bordeaux but he wasn’t finding anything he liked. Then he stumbled upon a listing for a garage that at 80,000 euros was less than half the price of a similarly-sized home. There was no house, it was just an abandoned garage for sale. The garage had big metal doors that blocked out any sunlight and inside it was being used more as a junk room. So Buchholtz called his friend and architect Matthieu de Marien who specializes in converting stores, offices and other spaces into homes. Now enjoy this incredible architectural transformation from an ugly garage to a beautiful living space.
