Inspiration from architect:

It is more of a pavilion than a house, given that the only thing to emerge IS a large open level of rectangular panels in a bright white, as if it were a temporary. Japanese pavilion or a marquee.

It takes us back to the idea of a “house” as an authentic archetype as understood by Gaston Bachelard and Luis Barragan: with a basement and an attic.
