Collaborating closely with the owners, Butler Armsden settled on a courtyard scheme that embraces the site, maximizing wonderful views and enhancing the natural indoor/outdoor living environment. Materials were chosen for their elegant and timelessness. The exterior showcases stucco on the walls and chimneys, steel windows and doors topped off with a copper roof. The interior is finished with natural woods, stone and plaster. Butler Armsden also oversaw the selection of all interiors furnishings and finishes.

Cascading Courts Residence by HYLA Architects

A series of cascading courts between the house and the party wall forms the basis by which this semi-detached house is organized. From the outside one is scarcely able to see these courtyards due to the screening and deep shadows. The courtyards are covered with a glass roof and timber pergola, which makes them pretty much all weather spaces.
