Atomized Courtyard House

Project Description

This prototype divides the sliver lot into a series of outdoor courtyards and indoor rooms.  The courtyards vary in size depending on the needs of the adjacent rooms.  Windows of each room face the courtyards allowing the walls facing the neighbors to be solid. This provides privacy that would otherwise be hard to achieve on such a narrow lot while still allowing light and air into each room.  These prototypical design strategies can be adapted to the constraints of differing sliver lots and to the needs of the client.
