    Looking East

    The experience of a house is defined by the nature of the familial relationships that grow within it. This house seeks to explore and study how hierarchies in social interaction are affected by the spatial relationships and the journey through the house. Situated in India, this home is designed for a three-generation family with live-in help. Every space in the house looks to the east where the temple lies, immediately setting up a spiritual hierarchy; hierarchies are further enhanced through subtle nuances and tectonic manipulation as one ventures through the house.
