Trivia About Courtyard Houses The proposed house designs take inspiration from a combination of these classical colonnades, typical British terraces and Mediterranean courtyard typologies. The spatial arrangement of houses within a Masterplan envisage each housing typology as a building block within a connecting configuration of neighbourhood dwellings, all of which surround a communal inner courtyard.

Houses are individually designed in response to their specific typology and user, but with a collective consideration of what constitutes public and private space, both inside and outside the house. The ground floor of each house features different types of colonnades, private gardens, extension plots, garages or garden sheds, depending on the users needs for the typology in question. Urban integration Over the last decades building plots have The problems of the single family house type become increasingly expensive as land availability and the urban structures it produces are most decreases and land development costs increase.

One can only assume that, successively smaller. The resulting disadvantages from the viewpoint of the individual homeowner, the of the single family home outweigh the advantages aforementioned advantages more than outweigh by far. Theoretical approaches to reconcil ing this categorical discrepancy have been Because the plots are small, the individual devised but are few and far between.

In terms of spatial flexibility, disintegration of the compact historical city and the too, the individual house has its limitations: while gradual urbanisation of the landscape. It seems instead that the catego- ries of urban development and the detached single family house are mutually exclusive.

Where, perhaps, individual houses offer most potential in the city is in locations where access is only possible from one side, for example, along riv- ers or terraces in the landscape that offer a view. In- dividual buildings in the form of freestanding multi- storey houses with apartments on each floor that look out over the landscape afford as many units as Le Corbusier, too, examined the single house possible the advantages of freestanding structures. Corbusier proposes freestanding buildings key to the future of individual housing lies in mul- in the form of high-rise towers beneath which the tiplication of the units.

In principle the objective is quite simple: each unit needs its own entrance - no joint staircases! Each unit needs its own front gar- den, perhaps also a garage of its own and a garden fence. Although the objectives may seem simple to formulate, they are highly complex to realise. It necessitates the development of entirely new con- ceptual structures for architecture, the alteration of existing building legislation and the development of new aims and priorities for collective housing.
