Project Description

The courtyard house is a minimal-dwelling model designed to provide a dynamic and relational living experience. It imagines two dwellings framing a semi-indoor court--the primary element of the proposal--wherein the owner and tenant can experience a range of private and shared activities. Especially suited for multi-generational families, this model affords a sense of connectedness between the lives and activities of the house’s residents through the medium of the courtyard—instead of the stark separation that would result from a partition wall.
