    Default Courtyard house by Rowan Opat

    In Melbourne, Australia




    Viewed from the circular drive out front, the courtyard is the house's defining feature. With a shaded walk all the way around it, and a northward siting, the space makes use of passive solar techniques to remain temperate even in hot Victorian summers.

    I want to like it, but there's something about it that just doesn't appeal to me. I do like the bathroom tile.

    I like it, but the yard is a sad mess. Are they not allowed grass there-and bushes?

    It's newly landscaped so give it time. Most things fry to crisp in the end anyway, especially as we can't water our gardens at the moment because of the drought.

    Just because you're offended doesn't mean you're right.

    There is zero landscaping in the courtyard...what a waste of a potentially beautiful space. If you are going to build your living space around a courtyard, at least do something with it to make it inviting, warm, beautiful, something to look at from every room.

    I like the interior more than the exterior, and I don't like the interior all that much, lol.
