Western Windows Feature: Courtyards House

“Our objective is always to do something that’s elegant and timeless and modern. And those words describe the Western Window Systems products,” Hancox says. “They have a slim profile that we like, and they maximize the amount of glass.”

“There’s the illusion that from certain angles that all the courtyards are connected. It’s interesting because you can look from one courtyard through the inside of the home through another courtyard through another courtyard to the outside of the home,” says Kothke. “The main courtyard is U-shaped, and then there’s a series of four smaller courtyards that really create unique outdoor spaces.”
