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

on a greenfi eld site, principles of

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.
