Part 1      Part 2

 

This house had no compluvium. The problem of lighting the atrium, the roof of which sloped towards the back, was solved in a simple manner. 

At the rear, there was a light courtyard. By means of broad windows, this provided light and air to not only the atrium, but also to the adjoining rooms.
