Hidden House is an exploration of what happens to architecture when it lives in a city that is allergic to change. In this context, the house wears a mask to hide the architectural freedoms within. The mask—in this case, the facade—conforms to society’s idea of what is appropriate while all that cannot be expressed in civil life takes up residence behind it. Some amount of repression is essential to civilization—a compromise between the individual’s instincts and society. Only by gaining access to the interior can one explore the house’s private domestic fantasies.
