OSMOSIS: movement of a solvent through a semipermeable membrane into a solution of higher solute concentration that tends to equalize the concentrations of solute on the two sides of the membrane.

The house is analogous to osmosis as it embodies the semipermeable membrane by filtering from public to private use. It equalizes the temperature by expanding in summer and contracting in winter.
