Text description provided by the architects. The clients for this project requested a bath from which they could gaze out on a courtyard. We planted a symbol tree in the courtyard and designed the bathroom to look out over it.
The courtyard brings light and breezes into the bathroom and kitchen/living/dining room while maintaining privacy for those inside.
The exterior is a black box with square windows on the southern side. The windows provide an accent to the facade while also smoothly linking the exterior and interior of the house.
