Another style and feeling - sinking courtyard
The “sinking courtyard” is also known as the “Garden Level”. Generally speaking, it is used in places where there is a difference in height before and after, and the height difference and landscaping are manually handled, so that the part which is originally a basement has an open space facing the garden. Compared with the unobstructed flat-floor courtyard, this hidden courtyard contains nothing to reveal. At the same time, although it is outside, but because of "sinking" into the lower part of the house, one is connected to the nature, the other is a warm home life, giving people a strong sense of belonging.
This design encloses the original open courtyard for the owner easier to take care of. Part of the top floor of the courtyard is made of glass, and sunlight can penetrate the glass and shine into the room.
The larger sunken courtyard can be divided into functional partitions, the upper terrace leisure area, next to the stairs connecting the upper and lower floors, and a set of wrought iron furniture adds a casual chat place for the outdoor party. Not only does it improve the utilization of space, but the sense of hierarchy is instantly enriched.
Use the yellow stucco wall and the green decorative line at the top of the wall to bring the comfortable interior elements to the outdoors, making the entire courtyard as warm as the interior.
For the 90 square meter large sunken courtyard, the high level and low level create a richer visual sense and possibility of use.
The European-style sunken courtyard, wall lamps, fireplaces, and bumpy walls, entering the courtyard, seem to have returned to the Middle Ages.
For smaller courtyards, it is also good to make it a secret small garden.
Extend the courtyard life to the interior, go out to the green courtyard, have such a beautiful house, and fear that the family will not get together often?
