Think Architecture has completed a courtyard house in the Zurich hills, Switzerland. The courtyard house type is a response to the strict architectural rules of the community that it does not centralize the living space. Through the selected structure, high quality and privacy can be achieved in the indoor and outdoor Spaces. A spacious, common park landscape connects the whole to the natural surroundings of the adjacent forest, rather than the spread of a private garden. The courtyard house is built in a modular manner, identical in basic concept, but reflected in a common middle, and responds individually to specific topographical situations.
The strict layout structure is reflected in the facade and roof landscape. Each room has its own attic, with skylights. The roof responds to the size and importance of a particular room and helps arrange different functions. The rooftop landscape is an architectural response to the sloping roof building code and gives the building as a whole a unique identity. The surface of the facade is made of decorative concrete and has clear and dark parts. The same material of gray-cemented concrete is added to limestone and trampled and treated in different ways to achieve specific functions and aesthetics.
