The center atrium deflects natural light to all four corners of the house. Tropical trees, meandering mosaic stone walkways, and a koi pond bring the outdoor vibe inside. ‹ Santa Barbara Magazine

Atrium House by MESH Architectures  Love the floor and the hallway opening up to the atrium  The tall windows in the double height living work well bringing in the light

Home made shutters only I would like for them to lock and slide like a screen door then use them for my patio and windows.

Original Eichler house plans, 1960s.  I've always loved the idea of a courtyard (atrium)! 1649 sq ft

Interior Courtyards: This image is from a lovely blog post on lookslikewhite about the beauty and delight of interior courtyards. Having an open-to-the-sky center of the home is a beneficial feature of Vastu. I plan something like this for my own house!

The plan of the house revolves around a rocky outcropping lush with life that acts as the home’s central atrium. The granite was left intact in order to serve as the nucleus of the courtyard, and the walls of windows draw a wealth of natural daylight into the back of the building. Photo by Misha Gravenor.
