a mountain-side courtyard home


This house is a line of three squares: a central tree-filled courtyard flanked by a garage/studio impluvium volume on one end, and a large, hip-roofed residence on the other.  The rafters of this roof extend to encapsulate a long porch, the majority of which is screened.  A spiral staircase descends to the bedrooms, which are located below.  The complex is imagined to be sited on a hillside, with the garage square nearly underground, and the residence looking out over the valley below.
