Entry Courtyard tropical-exterior

Entry Courtyard

Private courtyards allow rooms to be opened up for natural ventilation rather than rely on noisy air-conditioning in tropical climates.

Rocks were used under the tree. The lights I believe are candles, there were no landscape lights placed in that location. This photo was taken soon after opening so the palm tree was that height when planted.
