A house nearly always refers to oneself, depicting ones body and attributes of personality. Thus if we take a large house with its many functional rooms, the library would represent the mind; the bathroom cleansing or renewal of good feelings; the bedrooms ones sexuality or intimacy; the roof ones protectiveness or ‘coping mechanisms’. Large public buildings such as hospitals, factories blocks of flats, depict particular functions suggested by their nature, such as work or healing.
