This is an architecture that is immersed in daily life and it plays a vital role in the way we express our personal beliefs and values. What matters for its inhabitants, is whether their life-habits are conveniently accommodated by the building, rather than the beach house the building as an artwork. As such it is not machine à habiter as Le Corbusier held (pure and authoritative form that is contemplated); but more an house as an extension of the person’s ethos (body and habit).
It is a dwelling. The building will support some habits, and might obstruct others, but crucially the thing that makes it satisfying is the match between the building and the life that goes on in and through it.
