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.

The courtyard sanctuary promotes wellbeing, light and ventilation in the middle this bustling and vibrant family home. A new north facing living wing connects the original forms to complete the courtyard enclosure opening the communal spaces of the house onto a reclaimed north facing yard to accommodate active children.
