The Richmond House by Morris Partnership Opens up Tight Spaces

Located in Melbourne, a more southern-situated city in Australia, the Richmond House by Morris Partnership makes the most out of the central area of the home. Where many would opt for a closed-in space (with the potential result of it feeling quite tight), these architects turned the middle section into a courtyard instead.

The courtyard is complete with a seating area, greenery protruding from one side of the wall and a pop of red on another to stay consistent (the entire house has hints of this color throughout). Since this house by Morris Partnership opens up in the middle onto this area, the design gives off a theatrical look, like a center stage ready to be performed on.
