Courtyard Home

1,700 sf Residence
Durham NC

Simple and efficient. Start with a vacant lot in a modest, in-town neighborhood. Organize every room around an intimate private courtyard and lap pool. Insert a glorious screen porch that’s larger than the living room. Unfold the roof and meet the sun with deep, ascending overhangs. Add geothermal heating and cooling, photovoltaic power, and high-performance foam insulation. Keep it small. Keep the materials simple and affordable. Carefully design every detail. Easy modern.
