Designed by architect Robert Konieczny of KWK Promes, the OUTrial House is the first property I’ve encountered where the roof doubles as an atrium. The catch? It is only accessible through the interior of the house. This allows the homeowners the benefits of an outdoor garden, while remaining a safe internal zone within the building.
