Description

The home-office: domesticity in post-pandemic world.

The home has never been more critical; it is our sleeping place, our workspace, our study space, our everything space—which at times, even isn’t safe from COVID. We see ad-hoc interior design solutions to isolation issues: multiple work settings in multi-generational housing, housemates studying on top of each other and parents playing school teacher.

How will we create new spaces of adaptation fit for the COVID-as-normal future? This studio will consider interior architecture solutions to address the emergent need for new multivalent approaches to the home. It will develop one-to-one scale, hybridised furniture and fixture options to enable rapid change-in-use environments for high-choice work, play and study settings in the domestic interior.
