Modern Stone House with Huge Central Courtyard by FARM

FARM have designed the Wall House. The separation of the house into two blocks, in part a response to the sheer scale of the land, is also a requirement brief given by the clients. It consists of a two-storey block with the main living and master bedroom area, and a single-storey block housing the entertainment areas of the house. What links these two volumes together is the huge central courtyard at the entrance expressed in an austere geometry of granite floor and wall, an organically shaped oculus and a minimalist planting of six willowy trees. Like a sparse yet artful Chinese landscape painting, this sets the tone for the rest of the spaces.
