We have asked a lot of our homes in the past months. As we retreated to them as our safe haven, they had to function as our offices and schools, our playgrounds and gyms, our restaurants and cinemas. We will continue to spend more time at home: remote working is here to stay, at least for the time being and as an ongoing option for most companies, and, most likely, it will be years before travel reaches anything close to pre-pandemic levels.At this point we must design domestic spaces that accommodate more aspects of our lives. Moreover, the extraordinary changes we have made to our routines over the last few call for reinvention. We need to explore ways to maximise use in limited space, to generate a sense of safety and make room for individual preferences.
