A house with an atrium or courtyard always adds extra points in people's imaginary checklist when they go house hunting. It's because this type of open space built around the house can provide the homeowner with a place to relax and grow some plants. More importantly, the atrium due to being surrounded by your home, won't necessarily be giving you concerns about your privacy.
Today Homify will show you 5 atrium designs from beautiful homes. Their sizes and style are not the same, but are certainly extraordinary!
This is an old house with a history of more than 60 years, and it might be hard to believe that it is just an old wooden house with a remnant appearance! After the transformation of the Japanese designer, the house has a look of a pure white appearance, but also added a bit mystery. Let's go and find out what surprises await us inside.
Walking inside the house is a view of a courtyard hidden in lush greeneries like that of a small park. Who would have thought that a low-key and otherwise unassuming home could hide such a beautiful private courtyard at its very heart!

As for our second home debut, Homify presents a unique wooden house. The large two-storey home uses a lot of wood, creating a pure rustic minimalist style home with greeneries brimming at its base.

Here is a view of the second floor roof terrace. A cute and inspiring design where you and your guests will surely love!
There are some nature lovers who veer away from modern design, believing that it is too stiff and that it lacks that touch of nature. In this modern home you'll find that the entrance has an interesting warm-coloured brick relief wall that is unique and welcoming.
Inside the modern facade is a quaint courtyard with red maple trees, gravel and stones. A warm and beautiful contrast to the initial first impressions. Like they say,
do not judge a book by it's cover.
