Balconies are transitional spaces - at the same time inside and outside, public and private. It is a unique architectural element with an ambiguous status of being connected and at the same time detached. The pandemic has showed us the effect a simple balcony can have for our wellbeing.
This thesis investigates these private outdoor spaces adjacent to the residential units and explores the potential that lies in the interface between a housing unit and its context – highlighting or erasing it. How can a balcony become an essential and full-fledged space in our future homes?
