Interior Courtyards: This image is from a lovely blog post on lookslikewhite about the beauty and delight of interior courtyards. Having an open-to-the-sky center of the home is a beneficial feature of Vastu. I plan something like this for my own house!

Interior Courtyards

New York - Steven Harris Architects. An open courtyard separates the ground-floor sitting room from the home office.

RKW: Dream Space: Residential Atriums I like that its a room or part of a room in the house, but it can't decide where it belongs, the bath, the living room, a garden of its own - with a lousy view? Still there's something I like about the basic concept

With the greenery and the open airy windows, it's like this atrium is a little bit of outdoors brought in.

Delightful variation on the conservatory - a hexagonal wall of arched windows under a glass doomed roof with quarry tile floor makes for an intimate dining room. Maybe mirrors could be used in lieu of windows?

The succulents conservatory. #RestorationHouse #EnglishSummer


This is a succulent conservatory. I think, with a few modifications, it could be a mass heater greenhouse.
