# Internal Multi-Room Views

Is there an architectural term (eg, "vista") for a situation in which a building is arranged so that (with all doors open) you can view multiple rooms, one through another, in sequence, at once?
That is, when standing in room A, you can both see and look through rooms B and C to room D?
(One might want to widen the farther doors, but that's another problem.)

Or shotgun style as in shotgun house

Or enfilade as in "an enfilade is a suite of rooms formally aligned with each other"

HmMm, that's probably the closest architecture gets me, although as one would expect from architecture it implies deliberate design, and also linearity.
I have an analytical situation in which computer-generated multi-(say)- chamber forms are viewed internally and sequentially from their several chambers, eg
A(B(C)(D))
is viewed from B as
B(C)(D)(A)
from C as
C(D)(B(A))
and from D as
D(C)(B(A))
I've been, not entirely happily, calling these "eversions".
Thank you.

Years ago, I did a project where there were wide circulation spaces between all the rooms but because of the width (8 feet) and because the spaces were all wide open they couldn't really be called hallways. So we settled on the term interstice spaces to describe them. I.E. the space between two spaces.

HmMmm, "panoramas" . . . not quite the same, but . . . .
(I'd been leaning back toward not "eversions" but just "versions".)

Still lookin' and ponderin', obviously.
