A beating heart is divided into 2 sides, the left and right, which work together to pump blood throughout our bodies. Oxygen, energy, and electrical impulses are the 3 factors that the heart relies on in order to complete this process successfully. Just as a heart has 2 main sides, this house is divided into 2 main private wings that are connected by a common living space to accommodate a multi-generational household. The building materials, space plan, and circulation patterns will intentionally express the characteristics of the life-sustaining nature of a beating heart.
