Canterbury Household / Murray Legge Architecture
Text description furnished by the architects. The Canterbury Dwelling is a compact city house. It is made up of two bedrooms, a media home, and a completely detached visitor suite in only 1680 sq. ft. The home’s type is motivated by conventional puppy-trot houses a courtyard serves as the core of the living place, extending the compact areas on both side into a private outside area.
All 3 bedrooms as nicely as the major residing place have sights into the courtyard, bringing an abundance of all-natural gentle when preserving privacy.
The exterior of the house is clad in white LaHabra stucco, apart from for the courtyard, which uses a garapa rain display technique. The supplies split the white shell to reveal the warm inside, emphasizing the house as the focal position of the making.
The courtyard is shaded from the intensive Texas sun with a metal brise-soleil. The steel louvers shade windows in the afternoon when the sunlight is at its most harsh and develop an infinitely transforming play of shadows in the courtyard.
The house’s interiors use modest products in an elevated way. White subway tile and enough daylight produce vivid bathroom spaces. Adhere framing and plywood bay home windows generate seating parts and provide warmth into the residing house and bedrooms.
