Architecture in building considers the provision of space for a designated function. If space is designated as multi-functional, its purpose is multi-functionality. If it is designated as functionally ambiguous, its purpose is functional ambiguity. As the essence of architecture is the support of a greater whole, all architectural space is sanctuary to its purpose whether that purpose be discriminate or non-discriminate.
The library is sanctuary to study; the gallery is sanctuary to the experience of art. The market is sanctuary to commerce, the government building is sanctuary to its civic function and the home is sanctuary to personal living.
