This project serves as a precedent for a space delineated by walls, which encourages interaction. For instance, a giant screen in the garage serves to display images as visitors walk in.  Everyone will enjoy this feature considering projectors are placed outside of the house to watch films under the stars. To conclude the floor plan, downstairs there are galleries for state-of-the-art viewing. 
The purpose of this project is to create an innovative way for a married couple to co-exist with contemporary art in their primary residence. In other words, it is a house that exhibits space for Media Collection. (Terence,1). Why would a married couple do this? The common bond in their marriage is their passion of a acquiring vintage media artifacts and transforming them into DVD-ROM and MPG-2 file format (Woodward, 4). The main idea is to establish a priceless residence for a couple that the only thing they have in common is art. 
This home not only protects its inhabitants from the elements but it also communicates through the visual sense. Glass is the main material that is being used throughout the house, especially in the single-story structure that features 10-foot-high exterior wall that are made entirely of laminated glass.           
Also, curved glass partition walls divide the rooms on the ground level. When one turns on the projection screen it doubles the room by simply flipping on the switch. Dick and Pam Kramlich’s house can be best described as  “glassy jewel box”  (Woodward, 2)
