Courtyard Residence is a contemporary single-family home organized around a series of four courtyards and consists of various indoor/outdoor living spaces to provide the residence both privacy and shade. The bungaow’s arrangement explores spatial complexity through the studied arrangement of outdoor rooms and their relationship with interior spaces. The largest courtyard, containing a screened in pool and outdoor kitchen is visible from throughout the main floor. A large limestone clad wing wall shifts from this pool area, carrying the exterior material palette seamlessly inside. Generous door widths, corridors and an elevator make the home comfortable for multi-generational gatherings. There are custom details throughout that define this home as truly unique, including a cantilevered feature stair, a bespoke front door, and signature hardware.
