Courtyard Residence

Conceived as a series of pavilions encircling a garden, this suburban home employs a courtyard-house typology to create indoor/outdoor privacy within its densely populated context. Strategic interplays of light and shadow, expansion and contraction, solidity and lightness are used to create layered spatial richness. The house incorporates fuel cell and solar panel technologies, passive cooling, greywater reclamation, and extensive use of reclaimed finish materials.
