Three spheres are defined:
– Personal work space, towards the intimate, inward movement
– Walking space, for meeting
– Visual field, towards the outside
The work space is the first sphere around us. It is approx; your body length projected outwards. People crossing this threshold enter your personal space.

These three spheres are directly translated in the reality of three articulations of architectonic space. As such, the human habitat resembles an interplay between three demarcations in nature:
- cell (work space)
- court (walking space) and
- domain (visual field).
These three spatial restrictions successively grow in size and enclose one another. The cell is the first intimate demarcation, the absolute inside, which is strongly related to our presence.
This is the foundation for the three orders of size between inside and outside.
