In an attempt to render the tensions between private & public spaces visible, Room for a Bungalow offers two distinct relationships to a place of residence: that of permanence and of transience. The representation of immaterial processes offers an opportunity to perceive and evaluate an architectural action in the public realm, one that identifies a public face to domesticity.
