another round court

COURT_02

Yesterday’s circular courtyard influenced this take, along with a small fountain I passed by in Beverly Hills the other day.  Six columns make up a circular courtyard, filled with a pool and floating obelisk, while one side of the circular entablature rises to a pediment on one side, hidden from the entry tunnel.  The focus is obviously interior, but that doesn’t mean that the exterior is devoid of a little fun and asymmetry.  A wormseye axonometric above, sections and floor plan below, elevations and roof plan beneath.
