This townhouse proposal is for a married photographer and artist. The client recently left their home in the suburbs to move into this urban neighborhood. This proposal aims to create an indoor-outdoor relationship so that the couple feels as if they are moving away from city life when they are at home. To enter, the occupants ascend into a courtyard space and into the living room. The more private rooms such as bedroom, dining room, and work spaces are on the lower floor.
