Our homes have undergone a radical transformation in the past year. As we were forced into lockdowns, they became our safe havens, and had to function as our offices and schools, playgrounds and gyms, our restaurants and cinemas. With more and more companies opting for a distributed operating model (with a mix of remote and co-located employees), we can expect that working from home – whether full time or just for part of the week – will remain a reality for many of us. The domestic space needs to respond to these new dynamics by accommodating additional aspects of people’s lives. Any societal shift requires a design response. What can we learn from past crises and what are we learning from this one? When conceiving the dynamic home of tomorrow, designers and architects are asked to create highly functional environments in limited spaces, which convey a sense of well-being and allow for individual preferences.
