Abstract

The enduring pandemic and the compulsory stay-at-home condition offer the opportunity to examine some hints of domestic space renewal. The super-use of interiors, considering home as a place where ‘to stay’ instead of ‘stationing,’ brought, on the one hand, an increasing focus on physical and psychological human well-being, re-calling the domestic space prime and primitive values as a refuge and, with it, the crucial importance of its physical and virtual borders, recognizing the importance of its identity and history. On the other hand, our ‘refuge’ borders face the entry of public space with its features and functions into the private and domestic one. Our domestic scenarios recognize a new functional layer consisting of highly equipped and publicly visible spots. As designers, we try to interpret these fragmented, spontaneous, and temporary spatial interventions as elements of a broader process of rethinking the domestic environment, according to a new interpretation of time, as dense, virtual, and prolonged. New fluid pulsing layers in which the polarities of well-being and performing demands make a complex open system. They coagulate, dissolve, and re-assemble to embrace, protect and welcome their inhabitants’ ever-changing needs.
