In the courtyard looking back to the first floor living roomThe large glazed area of the living room creates an interpenetration of indoor/outdoor space just as the unglazed "windows" and roofless "walls" in the courtyard allude to interior spaces. The terrace is a kind of open-air living room.
The opposite end of the courtyardThe concrete table is attached to a column just as the smaller table was attached to the column in the vestibule on the ground floor.
|Planters embedded in the floor make this a terrace garden.|
