Then, how do you organize a house and its different rooms if the relationships between family members are constantly shifting?

First Floor Plan

According, the house organizes itself ambiguously between one family nucleus and two independent areas expressed to the exterior by a diagonal cut that divides the cubical mass into two sub-masses.

The location of the vertical circulation on the central part of the house makes the interior spatial division evident although it remains a clear single volume from the exterior.

On one side of the vertical circulation the house is occupied by parents and on the other side by the three children.
