What Houzz contributors are saying:

The central courtyard plays a big role in blurring the line between indoors and outdoors. Most of the windows in these rooms can be opened and have a low bench seat for enjoying the space in between the two. "We did end up limiting the extent that all of the windows and doors can open up," says Erdos. "This provides some level of distinction between the inside and the outside."
John Hill added this to The Outside Comes Inside Down Under
In Crawford's design for the Petersham House, covered in a Houzz tour, the architect inserted a small courtyard in an existing house. A few rooms overlook the space, some of them opening themselves to it more than others via operable windows. The courtyard effectively creates a new core — a void — for the house, with a little bit of nature, sky, light, and air.
Becky Harris added this to 5 Spectacular Australian Homes
Using natural light and opening up to the outdoors drove the design, which carefully considers all of the relationships between inside and out. As you can see here, doors completely open up the space to the courtyard, and the edge between the two even serves as a bench. See the rest of this home

once again they bring the outside in by blurring the lines and clever use of glass doors. So jeallous of whoever lives in this space. I would totally hire these guys to build my house or remodle if I had deep pockets.
