During the pandemic, the dwelling is playing a pivotal role in this global crisis. Lockdown or quarantines measurements have confined people physically in their homes. We attempt to experience our entire day-worth of demands interiorly. At present, we are experiencing the life in the city within our dwelling, bringing the out-side into the inside. Thus, this new spatial transition forms an expansion from inside out, which breaks with the idea of a “physical boundary” between exterior and interior spaces.
