Tryon Creek Courtyard House


A U-shaped single story plan, this house and its central courtyard have beautiful views of the Tryon Creek Wilderness.  The open living/dining area is the heart of the home, with a 12’ ceiling, 22’ wide sliding doors opening to the courtyard, and high, clerestory windows.  The kitchen has both a long work island and an eating nook for a wide range of activities and gatherings, and opens to the living/dining area and the wilderness view beyond.

The courtyard is partially covered, with a slightly sloped roof, pitched upward from the interior to admit more daylight and to avoid blocking views of trees beyond.  An ADA oriented guest wing will accommodate aging family members.

I completely appreciate the effort, details, and logical layout you put into your construction documents.
