Every architectural space has a double purpose.

In its most pragmatic sense it limits and allows for the objects intended for its organic and operational use; the function. Eating, sleeping, reading, cleaning, showering, guarding.

In a broader sense, the space embodies, abstracts time and arouses a sensory experience: the desire.

Nourishing, dreaming, learning, purifying, contemplating.

The exercise of breaking apart function and desire makes evident that architectural production can’t ignore that spatial meaning comes from its coexistence.
