From an interview with Enrique Norten by Brigitte Shim:

Shim: Throughout modern architecture, the house has been a laboratory for invention. It has been a testing ground for architects to explore new ideas using the ordinary program of kitchen, bedroom, bathroom, living space. How is this house used to push your architecture?

Norten: What I was looking for with this house was probably a return to the main principles of modernism. I was trying to look for the very basics of architecture: a simple structure, simple construction methods, and straightforward spatial conditions that would satisfy the needs of our family. The house was a laboratory where I was looking back to where the tradition of modernity started, and I tried to recapture that.
