In It best from, the house emerges from the Institution of Home, and home is where wisdom and love prop open the gossamer curtain of civilization; a first universe holding a world of experiential treasures. Its domains are polysemic, and its full expression is not rightly captured by a single syllable.

So then, the notions anchored by housing within human settlements carry the unique mantle of crystallizing that moment of dwelling we know as homecoming.
