Design Inspiration: The Modern Courtyard House

The Modern Courtyard House

The 7 modern houses below are designed with a courtyard as a significant feature of the home – whether as an enclosed entry or a sheltered central courtyard, these spaces enhance indoor/outdoor activity and provide a visual focus for the home.

“The heart of each home is a private courtyard that expands the experience of the home by blurring the line between inside and out.”Ibarra Rosano Design Architects

Studio MM is currently designing a home for a family who loves to use their outdoor space but wants maximum privacy from neighbors. Our design solution is a courtyard-style house where the architecture provides the buffer from neighboring properties and focuses the home around our clients most active space.

Our “roundup” of Modern Shed Roof designs from a couple weeks ago was quite a hit in the LinkedIn group discussions and on Google+ so this week we’re sharing more of the modern houses we’ve been looking into for inspiration… Below are a few fun finds for The Modern Courtyard House. Enjoy!
