Rather than create the ideal home for a set of very specific characters, why not instead think of those characters as the spaces themselves?

That is, as a way to question the "houseness" of a house, can we think of the people within our homes as providing things, feelings, and spaces as essential to live as say a bedroom, a kitchen, a bathroom, or any other room in an ordinary house?

The following then is a proposal for a generic house that makes for a specific home - whoever you are.

This is a narrative heavy studio that is impossible to understand without it. The House : The Waken Desire, a studio report published by the Harvard GSD, explains the studio in more depth. My work can be found starting on page 126.
