Hello everybody! Can anybody tell us something about the CONTEMPORARY use of courtyard/patio in a single family unit in a periurban area as a township? in case we want to consider a patio in our layout, should we cover it/close it/consider it as a eating area/washing clothes/.. or more like a possible "jolly room" for any need? It's easy to find traditional references of patio houses, but we want to make sure our design fits with contemporary needs!
One way to begin is to do some Online search with the phrase: "Ghana courtyards" Keeping in mind that in townships, the house orient modern architecture. So take the liberty in the layout. You may integrate patio, courtyard, or open compound (see example below) into your design.

Thanks a lot for the images We made some online researches before posting the thread on the board, but we wanted to understand if there were specific infos that we might had to consider because of cultural/logistic use of this specific space. I understood from your reply we can "propose" any (reasonable) kind of patio layout and imagine the use will naturally adapt to its conformation. Thanks!
Making your own courtyard patio should be fun and exciting. You should have a lot of decorations like a good porch or a swing outside seems nice. You can also put some plants and try putting some furniture. You should put a nice coffee table and some good arm chairs will do the trick.
