Photo 5 is fantastic for narrow lot housing where all too often the garage dominates the frontage. Just that little bit of a recess, the overhang, and focus on pedestrian access downplays the impact of the garage.

I would have loved a garage under the house. I really like the idea of utilising space like this and keeping a smaller footprint on your block leaving room for a garden and trees which has all but disappeared in some suburbs now, this not a good thing for so many reasons. We are lucky to have so many great choices for garage doors, they can be a nice feature. I am about to replace ours and I'm really taken with the new 4D German doors on the market, has anyone had any experience with them, I'd love some feedback.
