When artist Robert Guthrie was looking to buy a house, he knew he was not going to go for something traditional. Guthrie purchased a 1918 gas station in New Orleans, two miles from the French Quarter with the vision to transform it into his home. He took the 2,000 square foot station and installed a full kitchen and jacuzzi. Guthrie took many parts out of the main area but was able to preserve and pay respect to the location’s previous life. The wooden tresses holding the roof were kept intact and the hydraulic lift became the landing for the new staircase. The makeover expanded to the new home’s roof by turning it in to an open patio. This modern renovation is one of the most original and coolest ever. Car lovers will love the details in the cabinet handles as well as the homage to autos throughout this cozy place.
