Just a clarification, it's not only L-shaped, but if I'm not wrong it
might be a square around the explicit grid.

For example in a 2x2 grid:
  grid-template-columns: 100px 100px;
  grid-template-rows: 50px 50px;

If you place an item with ([1] & [2]):
  grid-column: -1 foo / span bar;
  grid-row: -1 foo / span bar;

You'll end up having a 4x4 grid, with the explicit grid (E) "wrapped" by
the implicit grid (I):

  I I I I
  I E E I
  I E E I
  I I I I

Bye,
