Designed as a daytime city retreat for a client who is an avid tea drinker, book and nature lover, Courtyard House is a private cluster of courtyard buildings set in a traditional neighbourhood in a Chinese city. We created a series of spaces based on the hobbies of the client and how he could be enjoying the spaces in different seasons. The colour of the original timber structures were restored painstakingly to create an oasis of calm. The design of the interior styling and decor brings about a delightful setting that pays tribute to its history, architecture and gardens.
