In response the architect proposed locating a large courtyard in the center of the house that would let in light and air without sacrificing privacy. Taking the flood risk into consideration, the foundation and floor are fairly high. The rooms are linked in a loop around the central courtyard, creating a space where the kids can run around and around.
