Courtyard Flip

I was thinking about some of the issues with the glass walls facing the courtyard. Firstly the house would be environmentally poor, secondly you would have nowhere to hang your art, and thirdly there would be no privacy for the bedrooms. I had this idea that these walls facing the courtyard could be 'flipped' copies of the exterior walls facing them, as in the windows start at the bottom and progressively erode away the entire wall toward the centre.
This will no doubt make more sense when I've actually drawn it, but in the mean time, this photo by Doug Aitken kinda sums up the image I have in my head.
