 The Modern American House - Cambridge University Press
The desire for spaciousness reached its highest pitch where it was most lacking, in the small, single-family houses that came to be the cornerstone of middle-class life in the nineteenth century.
In direct conflict with actual dimensions, spaciousness was linked to a tension unique to the middle class between spatial aspirations and financial limitations.
Although rarely addressed in a sustained fashion by theorists and practitioners, Isenstadt argues that spaciousness was central to the development of modern American domestic architecture, with explicit strategies for perceiving space being pivotal to modern house design.
