A Narrow Home With A Small Courtyard

When there’s very little space to work with on a site, most people wouldn’t even think of adding a courtyard to the design of their home. It’s why we were so surprised by this tiny residence from Melbourne, Australia.

The house is very small but, even so, the site still had room for an internal courtyard. The project was designed by Edwards Moore and the residence is constructed in such a way that the courtyard connects all the rooms in the house.

Named Dolls House, the structure is the smallest house on the street. It used to be a workers cottage until it got transformed and converted into this tiny and cozy private home.

Contemporary Single-Family Residence On Lake Austin

Lakefront properties are also beautiful simply because of their location. The landscape here is very nicely balanced. The water features are ever missing and they add charm to the whole design. In the case of this property, the landscape and everything else the site had to offer was used in a modern and creative way.

This single-family lakefront residence can be found in Austin, Texas and it was designed and built by Audino Construction. The design of the house as seen from the outside is quite simple and traditional. The large windows and the glass insertions definitely give it a modern look while the wood gives it a little bit of rustic charm.
