THE CENTER OF OUR HOME

Thesis

This research explores the evolution of the domestic floor-plan focusing on use. Its incredible change throughout time results from events caused by innovations and construction methods, art movements and social routines.

The Center of our Home addresses how use of space is not necessarily connected to a function and how inhabitants create their own use and rituals.

This leads a conclusion advocating unbound space, designed around the inhabitants that should be free to alter their interior according to their needs - disputing our interior as an often standardized model.

This thesis was partly a preliminary research for my project: Revamping the Row-house, which can be viewed here:
