About The Courtyard House
Embracing Eco-Conscious Architecture
Andaluz, an eco-conscious family business, enlisted Studio Saxe to craft architectural designs that leverage the environment’s power to deliver transformative experiences.
Creating Meaningful Connections with Nature
The Andaluz brand emphasizes genuine, impactful experiences, blending comfortable human living spaces with a strong connection to the surrounding landscape. Studio Saxe strategically positioned a series of homes around existing trees atop a hill, integrating ocean and jungle views while fostering a sense of comfort and security for residents.
Designing a Modern Tropical Paradise
The Courtyard House features a smart design that accommodates existing trees, fostering a connection to the external jungle while maintaining a sense of privacy. By blurring the lines between indoor and outdoor spaces, the home allows nature and human-made elements to coexist harmoniously. Two horizontal pavilions connected by a sheltered internal garden exemplify a contemporary tropical design that both complements and accentuates its surroundings.
Andaluz is renowned for its durable, long-lasting construction techniques and high-quality materials. These elements combine effortlessly to enrich the occupants’ experience while emphasizing low-maintenance, high-comfort living.
Prioritizing Sustainability in Design
Each home boasts an advanced bioclimatic design, informed by an understanding of natural phenomena such as wind, sunlight, and geological features. This allows for the strategic protection and integration of homes as needed, regulating comfort without relying on energy consumption. Both Studio Saxe and Andaluz maintain that beauty and experience are inherent aspects of sustainability, enhancing human experiences and enduring the test of time.
