Location: Austin, Texas, USA

Courtyard House in Texas

Inspired by early Modernist and Bauhaus era architecture, this one room deep house is organized along an L-shaped window wall which offers each space a connection to a central courtyard and a balance of natural light from multiple sides.

Courtyard House

The street facing courtyard and transparent first floor are made private as the house is perched on a plinth above passersby.

Courtyard House

With little protection from shading trees, exaggerated overhangs help protect the transparent façade and provide continuous outdoor living space between interior and courtyard. Simple, well-crafted details are carefully edited so as not to compete with the texture and reflections of the true divided lite steel windows.
