Casa Familia from Architect Kevin deFreitas’

In South California the courtyard house designs are pretty famous, but the building monotony of those designs had to be broken by someone and Kevin deFreitas’ has managed to do that. Kevin has finished the Casa Familia which is a modern take on the courtyard house designs. It is two-storey house with a compact form factor which offers a lot more living space than a square footage facility can offer. The difference despite a courtyard accommodation is the way the designer has managed to blur boundaries between the indoor and the outdoor. He managed to achieve that by getting in great outdoor views by using large windows. The house also scores high on the sustainability factor by employing energy-efficient low-consumption technologies. It consumes 65-percent less electricity than the state mandated standards and 55-percent less water than the houses of similar sizes.
