It is almost farcical to claim that housing architecture demands the greatest engagement and deliberation in design, just because we spend most of our time there. This is easily refuted by the state of the world we live in today.


Using the banal statistics of the life of a prosaic corporate employee, who, let us assume, has some hobbies, a social life and some useful free time, it is absolutely right to assert that he spends more time in his workplace than in the housing where he ‘lives’.
