Courtyard House by Dotze Innovations Studio

According to the architects: The initial idea was to create a contemporary Chinese courtyard house with a "回" shaped volume. This is a layout with individual living units and shared family spaces. They are connected by a looped corridor and separated by small light wells.

"Sky-Voids" are distributed in the corners of the building to provide natural lighting and ventilation. They are designed as individual small courtyards.

"Inner-View" is the idea of creating private garden views for the occupants' pleasure and blurs the visual boundary between inside and outside.

Big glazing facing the central courtyard is designed and "Sky Voids" provide inner-views of the garden. This is a project trying to re-define a modern Chinese courtyard house and explore how space can be divided individually but stay closely connected.
