m²ft is an architectural practice based in Madrid and Rome. Our approach sees architecture as a medium that has to be able to dialogue with the contemporary, providing critical proposals and inter-disciplinary solutions. We work on different scales, insisting on the boundaries between public and private, domestic and urban, space and time, with the aim to improve people’s quality of life and rediscovering architecture's role as a generator of life, before places.

Towards a dissolution of domestic boundaries between the house and the city

Domestic boundaries 2.0


Towards a dissolution of domestic boundaries between the house and the city
Trans-spatial devices for an expanded and augmented domestic urban environment

Type of project
  • Systemic changes

In the contemporary era, changes in the family structure, work organization, technology, gender, society and communication are reflected in a new urban revolution that combines the domestic environment with the city. The dualities of the public/private, exterior/interior, work/leisure, man/woman, day/night, house/city are now dissolving.
Domestic boundaries 2.0 is an installation that aims to investigate how architecture must understand its context to better respond to contemporary changing needs.
Through the insertion domestic devices within a public space it is shown how the concept of domesticity is now expanding over its traditional boundaries, highlighting the common of having a domestic environment into a public one. Furthermore, with the use of VR devices embedded within the installations the project critically investigate the role of technology in the definition of our space-time limits taking users into new immersive places and merging the virtual and the material contexts.
