Text description provided by the architects. Architecture is a snapshot of our current way of living. It is a synthesis of humanity in a time specific period. After the industrial revolution with the increasing reproduction of mass media, the introduction of new materials and new ways of transportation; the idea of a traditional interior space was transformed into a dialogue between interior and exterior. This change also challenged the boundaries of private and public spaces.

3:2 House has the intention to question the physical and visual boundaries of space in single family housing. We pretend to create a visually continuous and connected area that is limited by a gradient boundary –rather than a physical wall- between the private and public areas of a house.

The project is divided into 4 zones: bedrooms in the private zone; library and studio in the semi-private; living and dining rooms in the public area and a services area. The private area merges into the semi-private, and the semi-private merges into the public area. It is a gradient transition of private spaces that encourages interaction between its inhabitants without losing the essence of traditional spaces.

The great windows facing south, and the little diversity in its materials; make it a very comfortable house for its latitude, and give it a timeless yet contemporary feeling.
