Crafted out of the finest quality bluestone and natural hardwood, these honest, earth-drawn materials and textures create an impression of harmony between the house and nature itself. Horizontal bluestone slabs and vertical hardwood is combined with perfection; a reflection of design poise coupled with breath-taking craftsmanship. Aesthetic appeal is complimented by the durability of the materials, which are designed to withstand the adverse conditions the Australian coast has to offer.

The arrangement of the living spaces around a large, open courtyard helps bring the natural world into the heart of the domestic realm. Drawing natural light and breezes into the house, the courtyard accentuates the lofty ceilings and the endless space that is central to its design. The semi enclosed courtyard functions as an outdoor room onto which all internal areas flow; perfect for summer entertaining, or simply relaxing beneath the open sky.

The Courtyard House caters for both work and relaxation; featuring a study space, and designated reading nook with floor-to-ceiling bookshelves. 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.
