Abstract

Work homes have been used by the people since ancient times but, today people are preferring more to use work-home ideology because of technological advantages, time saving, budget savings etc. Advancements in communications have created new ideologies like work from home etc.

I believe work-homes are a broader concept than what's currently existing. Many architects have researched on integrated spaces and defined the typologies of them. That existing research was about the immobile integrated spaces, but very limited research has been done on the design elements that influence the space in these buildings and no proper research is done on mobile work homes.

I have seen many people travelling hours every day to reach their work destination and then spend couple more hours to travel back. Through my research I am trying to use the advancements in technologies and work home principles, to create a set of design elements for these typologies, so the person can use that time efficiently without any distractions, providing emotional satisfaction with a space, getting the ‘job’ done quickly and efficiently in the space.
