The stairwell and skylight occupy the center volume of the house, allowing natural light to filter throughout the interior.
The design of the central stairwell as an atrium allows natural sunlight to penetrate through the interior of the entire home.
Like something out of the fairy tale Aladdin, an amazing atrium extends off the back of the home, enclosed in glass with a ceiling that reaches up 22 feet. There's a wading pool with an ornate mosaic tile bottom, carved columns, a hot tub and palm trees.
Climbing vines and mature palm trees reaching up two stories high give this incredible atrium the feel of a desert oasis. The mood is enhanced via detailed mosaic tile designs, a wading pool and ornately carved urns and columns.
HGTV's Fixer Upper transformed this once awkward atrium into an open-air herb garden with wooden window boxes and planters. Located right off the kitchen, the courtyard is the perfect place to entertain guests around a rustic table.
Metallic accents, glass railings and rock beds greet those who visit this modern home located in the Southern California community of Corona del Mar. Clean lines are found in the hardscape, windows and roofline. Illuminated trees gives the space an elegant feel.
