What is a house?

House is the place in which we live. It gives us shelter and comfort, both physically and emotionally. It serves to define who we are and who we are not (Sudjic, 1999).

The house occupies a unique position in architecture and in the history of human culture. The house is the domain of the family, of domestic activities and is used for living , working, eating and sleeping and as a private place where individuals and families enjoy their personal lives. However, the house in its traditional form, a series of common rooms and separate sleeping areas has undergone a number of radical changes over the last century in which the possibilities for self-expression in the domestic environment have released a new platform for architectural experiment (Mcleod, 2007).

Housing today and ecomony

Ecomony is one of the determinants which effects housing today. A search of an economic house by users and developers limits the designer. Limitations force designers to produce various solutions. Living in a single house is accepted as luxury and this search lead us to the mass production. So users are forced to live in small apartments or row houses attached eachother repeating eachother with similar solutions.

Housing today and ecomony

Another solution to the economic housing is the prefabrication. Industrialised building components will be the another key to decreasing the cost of the building. The growing high cost of labour and site work force building more and more into factories where the components will be made to be assembled on the site in a minimum time.

By prefabrication variety of housing types is extremelylimited and monotony (Seidler, 2003).

Vacant buildings which is not in use converted into housing units which is more economic than a new built which is exampled in next few slides.
