Use Case study house #1 – by davidgalbraith design essays

The bubble diagram above shows how a house could be designed like a web application, focusing on User Experience (UX) and the everyday needs of the people living in it, following a flow of actions through the house during a single day.

Each building consists of rooms (spaces) interconnected between them. The functionality of a house should focus on how this creates a network of spaces and the flow between them according to each room’s use and purpose. In this case study the whole house is divided into two main space categories: the active and the passive areas. Passive areas could be cosy, soft & dark where as active areas should be bright and large.

The result of this study is an amazing diagram of a house layout and not a complete design, based on Case Study Houses ( 1940s  – experiments in American residential architecture carried out by Arts & Architecture magazine ).
