The Space Between Walls

HYLA Architects as Architects

This semi-detached house is detached from its façade and party wall to create courtyard spaces that allow light, ventilation and private views.

At the front, an almost blank brick wall conceals these spaces and the front door is similarly hidden in a timber wall. A swimming pool runs along the side and front creating a tranquil oasis for the house.

The timber staircase overhangs the pool and its covered by a glass and timber pergola that runs along the length of the house. Upstairs the gardens continue into two more courtyards which two bedrooms and a study look into.
