“A village of black timber and white brick living spaces … The new dwellings are built around a courtyard of an almost chequerboard geometry, designed to take in an abundance of natural light from all sides. A place of utter privacy and retreat, cool in summer with the shade of vine leaves; sheltered in winter to catch and store warmth.”
Don’t get me wrong. I LOVE the interiors but you’ll find me in that courtyard full stop. Courtyard House by Melbourne-based Powell & Glenn.
