Precedent: Rogers House, Wimbledon

Thanks to Matt's comment on the Free David Hicks post for pointing me to the Stories of Houses blog, and particularly to this early house by Richard Rogers. I like the plan because its kind of ambiguous as to whats inside and whats out. As far as I can work out, its two pavilions sitting on a paved plinth - but in reference to this discussion on courtyard houses, what is cool is if you invert that you get one big continuous house with two courtyards cut out of it.

I love the idea of reading this inverted.
