"The house features two distinct approaches," says Schiller. "The family arrives via a long dirt road to the back side of the house, shaped as a single-story barn. Below the house, guests park in a dirt pull-off and arrive via a long grass path through meadow grasses, entering the house from the south via a wide, glue-laminated exterior stair."

Courtyard House, Location: Somers Victoria Australia, Architect: Rowan Opat .Evolving from the notion of a series of outbuildings

passive solar design have informed this �courtyard

house�. The northern eaves respond directly to

shading becoming shallower in proportion to the

depth of space as experienced in the square plan.

As the dominant designed area, on this hectare

site, the courtyard both surrounds and is

surrounded by the house, creating a contained

space within an otherwise semi-rural block.
The cantilevered main floor creates space for bracken fern and other indigenous vegetation to flourish.
