RIVERVIEW COURTYARD HOUSE
The Riverview Courtyard House has transformed a landlocked property set back three blocks from the street with no view, into a calm, peaceful family cocoon with access to the outdoors, pool, and a view around a courtyard to the north west.
The L-shaped building and separate studio wrap around the pool, with large glass sliders providing flow from the two living areas.
The house is deceivingly compact. While the proportions inside are intentionally modest, many features create a feeling of space, light and connection. This was an important requirement for the family-focused clients.
By reimagining a challenging, landlocked and relatively small site, the architect has deeply considered the client’s needs balanced with the need for efficiency, to provide a family cocoon made for modern living; a light-filled home with space, connectivity, and access to nature.
