Ancien garage



A former garage in Notre-Dame neighbourhood. I believe it is now part of a fitness centre.

Wonderful facade. Green bricks??very unusual. I thoroughly enjoy the lettering.

Jack said...

Nice one, Ciel. The detailing on a simple structure like a garage pays dividends.

Une belle reconversion mais ou faut-il aller faire reparer son auto maintenant??

Since we'll drop the car in Avignon and, if we come out to Versailles, take the RER, we won't be needing a place to park. Still. it's good to remember such things.

What a great old garage. The colors in the glass are great.

Love the colours in this Ciel, and how fantastic that this building is being used in such a positive way!

What a beautiful restoration! Love that iron on the windows and the colorful glass work.

I could use a tune-up' in that classic garage.

Lovely photos...and it looks so familiar. In Micanopy, Florida there is a building that used to be a garage, also...with the word, "Garage" across the top. It's not nearly as nice/fancy as this building, though. Now it's an antique shop.

And yes, "barrenness" is a word and properly descriptive of this place which is quite remote and the area is quite barren!

Très soigné l'ancien garage il a des airs d'anciens établissements publics (par exemple bain-douche ou la goutte de lait) donc centre de fitness cela est très bien.
Dans la Drôme, et notamment dans le charmant village de St Nazaire le Désert, il y a beaucoup d'anciens cafés. Je soupçonne chaque habitant du village d'antan d'avoir tenu son propre café...

It's always interesting to observe how old premises can be recycled... Here garages are more precious and money making than fitness centers!

Tanya said...

even your garages are pretty!

JM said...

This is great! I especially like the details in the window shot. Any idea if there's something missing in the central 'medallion'?

Halcyon said...

A beautiful garage. Love the details.

A wonderful building... lovely to see it still in use without destroying all it's past.
I have similar in my little town.

I bet there's plenty of room inside to get fit. :) The wrought iron is very attractive.
