The brief: to provide some privacy and shelter to the existing courtyard.

This already vibrant outside space was covered by a pergola to frame and define the courtyard. The pergola uses delicate timber battens circumscribing a repeating pattern of circles; the purest geometric shape. The sun casts the pattern of circles in light and shade on the courtyard floor and walls, and traces our movement through time and space.
