House redefines the relationship between private spaces within the contemporary single-family residence. Each architectural element is used to create a sense of privacy and separation without compromising the sense of unity that defines a “family.” Through the use of furniture distribution, perforated curtains, space-sharing millwork, and visual screening techniques, micro environments of varying degrees of privacy are created within a single unified space. These conditions change the way inhabitants relate to and interact with one another within different spaces in the house.
