A look at three single room houses beginning with Charles Moore, and how each articulates house as sanctuary through siting, form, sequence and symbol.

The second house is that of Brian MacKay-Lyons, a student of Charles Moore’s at UCLA.

The third is the Rudin House by Herzog and deMeuron in Leymen France.
