33,359 Modern Courtyard Design Photos
This courtyard garden perched on top of a double garage in the hub of Sydney City was overgrown and never used. There was some structure in place but it was bordering on dangerous. The slate was wiped clean, and a consistent palette of materials introduced that provides a rustic but edgy ‘town garden’ feel. The plant sections respond to the shaded environment and create a cool, soothing place to unwind.
Designed to embrace an extensive and unique art collection including sculpture, paintings, tapestry, and cultural antiquities, this modernist home located in north Scottsdale’s Estancia is the quintessential gallery home for the spectacular collection within. The primary roof form, “the wing” as the owner enjoys referring to it, opens the home vertically to a view of adjacent Pinnacle peak and changes the aperture to horizontal for the opposing view to the golf course. Deep overhangs and fenestration recesses give the home protection from the elements and provide supporting shade and shadow for what proves to be a desert sculpture. The restrained palette allows the architecture to express itself while permitting each object in the home to make its own place. The home, while certainly modern, expresses both elegance and warmth in its material selections including canterra stone, chopped sandstone, copper, and stucco.

This home's modern architecture capitalizes on Southern California's mild climate with a central atrium. The atrium can be seen from almost anywhere in the house, and sculptural plants (sansevieria, dracaena) look great year round with almost no care.
