This single storey courtyard house was designed with the intention of creating a sense of openness. This was achieved by merging the internal spaces with the external courtyard spaces eroding the edges that separate the inside from the outside. This spatial merging creates vast axial views right through the extreme corners of the house. The courtyard arrangement allows every room in the house to face perfect north to maximise light and increase thermal control and energy efficiency.
