Indoor-Outdoor Living

Designed as a garden room, this simple extension is inspired by the Japanese aesthetic, Katachi whereby form, symmetry and craftsmanship create a building of beauty and functionality. Off axis to the original semi, the addition subdivides the garden into a series of courtyards, providing a sequence of changing vistas. This permits ventilation and solar access to modify climate extremes and allows light to penetrate into the dark, damp semi.
