It is within the parameters of the site, the walls of the building enclose it, but it is outside, it is an exterior element. The courtyard is often a haven of peace and quiet, a place of order and pleasure in a chaotic and hostile world. This enclosed and protected space can be observed throughout the history of architecture. It can be seen from early mediaeval monasteries to Moorish palaces in Granada. The courtyard provided quiet relief from the hectic atmosphere of the urban environment, and protection from potentially unfriendly and unsympathetic intruders.

Fitted furniture, such as counters and storage units, does not need to be positioned against party walls, it can be placed in the heart of the space, thus providing a point of focal interest and encouraging people to partake in the functional activity. John L. Johnson took this approach for the design of his own house in Toronto.

The designer has not cluttered the room with dividing walls; instead, furniture is used to control and arrange the specific areas of the interior.
