She shouts with the light that shines from within: a home to “LIVE”. However, it is so isolated that it seems like no one is allowed to enter. She is on her own.
The only asset she owns is the void, which she tries to fill by any means, to cheer herself up. There is no shelter, no companion but herself; she must make it alone.
Nevertheless, she awaits a guest, who will never show up. Solo house; a house with a design scope of 7 * 20 * 7 m3 is considered in a hypothetical location with a neighborhood surrounding its east and west side, with access from the south.
Due to the ambiguity, such as the vague context, obscure geography and unclear users, the strategy was based on the idea that the house should be defined in a container, not interacting with the surrounding environment, but with itself.
According to the definition, the program of the house is divided into two sections; private- and publicspace.
This is the division of full- and empty-space, defined and organized by the objects inside the container.
Private spaces of the house are objects inside the container. This conjunction leads to the creation of a empty space, defining the public space of the house.
Therefore, the synergy resulted from the interaction of the object and the empty space, leads to the creation of the living space. Source by Nima Nian, Mohammad Beiglari.
