Housing Architecture

Housing architecture is the field of architecture whose purpose is the study and construction of spaces - houses - in which people can live. As such, home design as a discipline must be concerned with a wide range of factors, many of which only apparently do not relate to architecture.

  • Internal space: how people generally experience it; what needs and aspirations its inhabitants have; how the human need for privacy and security should be addressed when building;
  • Outer space: what is the surrounding environment - a forest, a city, a windswept tundra, a megalopolis; what is its use by the community; how the project should dialogue with its surroundings - inserting itself into the existing landscape or challenging established paradigms.

Here you will find new stories and projects from all over the world that address these issues in many different ways: home renovations that observe long-standing traditions, housing projects that challenge existing paradigms, vernacular architecture, modularity, eco and minimal. All this is housing design.
