Because of the pandemic, the functions of housing have expanded — whole offices have settled here, people began to spend at home not only their free time, but also almost whole days. Therefore, the study will help to rethink many ingrained ideas about the house and form new modern principles.

In addition, the authors mean by «home» not only the actual dwelling, but also the concept in relation to the homeland or cities where a person lives most of his life.

“Our attention will also be focused on the quality of the environment — both natural and architectural. In addition to the actual surroundings of the houses, we are interested in elusive ephemeral concepts related to culture and the factors influencing its development and changes within it. Turning to cultural studies, we want to immerse ourselves in the issues of home practices, familiar to residents and able to tell about the meaning of the house sometimes even more than the study of its material shell”» says the team of ANO «Environment Design and Sustainable Development».
