  • Life and Thought have gone away
    Side by side,
    Leaving door and windows wide:
    Careless tenants they!

    All within is dark as night:
    In the windows is no light:
    And no murmur at the door,
    So frequent on its hinge before.

    Close the door, the shutters close,
    Or thro’ the windows we shall see
    The nakedness and vacancy
    Of the dark deserted house.

    Come away: no more of mirth
    Is here or merry-making sound.
    The house was builded of the earth,
    And shall fall again to ground.

    Come away: for Life and Thought
    Here no longer dwell;
    But in a city glorious—
    A great and distant city—have bought
    A mansion incorruptible.
    Would they could have stayed with us.

    —  Alfred Lord TennysonThe Deserted House,” 1830

    This house within a house appropriates “the radical use of the grid [to produce] an evolution of the traditional Japanese interior planning, where spaces were combined in layers. Every element which composes a conventional house is reinvented and relocated. The façades are just the exterior container of the multiple sequences of spaces nesting one within another. The openings are multilayered: they don’t just connect the interiors with the exteriors, but penetrate right into the core of the building. Their location and dimension, as well as for every interior wall, always refer to the three-dimensional main grid and its sub-divisions.”
