Design Notes On The Courtyard House

With its open plan and abundance of natural light, the Courtyard House pairs minimalist design elements with a relaxed, spacious layout.

Drawing natural light and breezes into the house, the courtyard accentuates the lofty ceilings and the endless space which this design has to offer. The centrality of the courtyard creates a strong feeling of interconnectedness between all of the living zones. Its semi enclosed design functions as an outdoor room onto which all internal areas flow. With this natural haven at its centre, the Courtyard House is perfect for entertaining beneath the open sky.

A Perfect Layout For Busy Families

The Courtyard House couples aesthetic beauty with functional practicality, and is endowed with all the essential features of the modern family home. Four bedrooms, including a master bedroom, promise to accommodate medium to large sized families, and provide added flexibility for hosting guests. Parents can revel in the luxurious privacy and sophistication of the master bedroom, which comes equipped with its own ensuite and walk in robe, whilst the kids can enjoy independence within their own secluded space.

The Courtyard House caters for both work and relaxation; maximise your productivity in one of two study spaces, or lose yourself in the pages of a book within a designated reading nook. The two living rooms foster interaction and family time, and can be used to entertain the kids or bring the family together at the end of a busy day. The open kitchen, dining and living area creates a communal environment orientated around food and socialising. Residences can exercise their culinary prowess using state of the art Swiss appliances, whilst the scullery offers ample space for storing your family’s provisions. The laundry is conveniently placed beside the kitchen, and is equipped with an external access point.

Storage + Practicalities of the Courtyard House

The challenge of finding enough storage space within a burgeoning family home is also addressed with extensive storage and joinery throughout the house, as well as an oversized double garage guaranteed to protect your vehicles from the elements. Hydronic heating and thermostat controlled zones will also ensure that neither your family nor your guests are affected by the extremities of the Australian weather!
