Courtyard House, Christine Ho Ping Kong and Peter Tan - (2001/2007), see also the link for interior views

Selected for Google Maps and Google Earth

Courtyard House is a unique Toronto residential dwelling. Minimalist inside and out. Open at least once a year to public, it opens a door to different kind of urban thinking!

This is their website, you will see what I mean.

There is no front yard or backyard and it is located in an alleyway (formerly a warehouse) in complete odds with this rather poor and forgotten neigbourhood, where kitschy statues are the dominant yard decoration.
