Interesting carport designs include a Palm Springs, California, construction which has a flat roof topped with solar panels. This construction helps reduce the attached house's electricity bills, according to Dwell. An open carport with walls and roof but no doors is a unique modern design.
A carport in a modern Thai home uses interesting design aspects common to Thai architecture, notes Home Designing. The carport is modern with clean lines, and accompanies a house with floor-to-ceiling windows. It reflects on the Thai family's fluid movement between the inside and the outside.
Another interesting carport design is a Providence, Rhode Island, construction. This carport is built under part of the house itself and features wooden gates that swing open, according to Houzz.
