The Courtyard House designed by Davis Architects, features Breezway Altair louvre windows to connect the old structure with the new extension. Located in Inner West Sydney, New South Wales, the house features aesthetically pleasing indoor-outdoor living spaces inspired by Japanese architecture.

The renovation of the Inner West Sydney terrace home takes into consideration form, function, light and airflow to maximise enjoyment of the living spaces by the residents. A Japanese garden provides a sense of tranquillity throughout the home.

Breezway Altair louvre windows provide the glass link in the renovation. Breezway louvres have been installed into timber frames, where the warmth of the natural timber in the glass link and throughout the living areas contrasts beautifully against the modern black kitchen. High windows and light wells allow an abundance of natural light to fill the living spaces.

Breezway louvres have been used widely in many areas of the home to provide unobstructed views to the outdoors while ventilating the home with natural breezes.

Edward Davis from Davis Architects states: “We love the look and practicality of Altair louvre windows. They allow for maximum airflow and work so well with our sub-tropical North Coast climate.”
