This new two-story house takes advantage of resources of its site and solar orientation. By arranging habitable rooms around a south facing courtyard, the family spaces are aligned with the movement of the sun in summer and winter. Sunlight and fresh air are enjoyed outdoors; at the terrace and balconies, while a shaded verandah keeps inhabitants cool on summer evenings. Design incorporates client preferences in materials and stylistic elements. Outdoor and transitional spaces are interspersed as an integral part of the family’s lifestyle.
