Mt Baker Courtyard – Protected and Contextual

Designed by Tyler Engle Architects P.S., the former seeping hillside with poor drainage and awkward pathways was transformed into a cohesive urban oasis – Mt Baker Courtyard.


New walkways circumscribe the primary outdoor living space while providing direct access from the garage and alley to the mudroom and kitchen.

Privacy was achieved by an architectural concrete wall that fortifies the separation from the alley and hides a new parking space while a heavy timber trellis buffers the garage.

These modern elements are detailed to respect the traditional context.
