The design for this Hamilton courtyard house utilises the existing footprint of a pair of timber cottages linked by a shared driveway. This arrangement had resulted in vehicles dominating the north facing backyards and the cottages having long disowned facades. Once the vehicles relegated to the front of the site and the original eastern cottage reluctantly replaced, the functional diagram could be altered to make the space in between structures the key aspect of the home.
