Hitman-Eddie Country House, Lancashire
The Hitman-Eddie Country House is planned around a central courtyard, the heart of the house that holds together the various dimensions of family life. The courtyard is an external room that feeds the surrounding enclosures with light, air and vitality and itself becomes an extension of these internal spaces. The three sides of the courtyard contain the major elements of the building, the formal wing, the kitchen wing, and the childrens wing. The fourth side of the courtyard is open to nature providing magnificent views from all the internal accommodation.
