Late Summer Courtyards

Take advantage of the space between buildings to locate a courtyard.

In the late summer, shade and plantings mix with paved areas to provide spaces for entertainment or for quiet contemplation.

An outdoor stone oven and chimney help enclose this paved patio tucked between the main house and the garage/studio. See more photos of this historic remodel and addition by Lawrence and Gómez Architects.

This entry courtyard welcomes the sun and provides a warm place for coffee on cool mornings. Read more about this house here.
