The courtyard (left) and the front of the house (below) at night. The transparency of the windows and doors (created by the lighting in the courtyard - including the hanging Foscarini Uto lamps - and in the interior) emphasizes the continuity of the roof structure between the inside and outside. Our next step is to furnish the courtyard, so we can take better advantage of the low humidity and moderate evening temperature of the dry season.

LED strip lights and compact fluorescent (CFL) floodlights on the front and side porches provide enough light to make pedestrians feel safe walking by the house, but draw much less electricity than incandescent or halogen bulbs.
