Project name: Courtyard House
Project location: Aurora, Oregon
Firm name: NO ARCHITECTURE
Jury comments: A courtyard eschews symmetry, creating a central octagonal space that drives the project plan. The exterior is seamlessly blended with the interior, taking advantage of the surrounding landscape. At once rough and composed, the house looks both outward and inward. More than a series of great moves, it represents design innovation. This project reinterprets a traditional type in a surprising way.
