It is the private spaces created in between that allow natural ventilation and light, intimate outlooks, and privacy for the occupants, a place to call home.Save this picture!Ground Floor PlanProject gallerySee allShow lessMoMA: Applied DesignEventPUC-RS Library / Santini & Rocha ArquitetosSelected Projects Share Torquay House / Wolveridge Architects Year:  John Walker Master Builders Heather Vincent Landscapes Photographs “COPY” Save this picture!© Derek Swalwell+ 32 Share ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOr Clipboard “COPY” Landscape Architects: last_img
