dc.description.abstractIn this thesis, I explored approaches to convert an office building to a residential building considering social activities and new normal. Focused, productive work is likely carried out a home, at times which best suit individual lifestyles, while collaborative and socially interactive activities bring people together in a variety of spaces. We saw this leading to the need for resilient homes, homes with the adaptability to support a range of activities throughout people's days. Homes need to provide spaces for exercise, entertainment, digital collaboration, connection, and focus (without becoming isolated), alongside the traditional activities of eating, sleeping, and washing.en

dc.description.abstractgeneralArchitecture finds new meaning or loses the old ones, depending on what is happening in the world and how human lives changing. Since pandemic hit in 2020, life has been abnormal in most aspects. Quarantine, remote working, and online activities are some of the new normal that inevitably became a part of human lifestyle. Even after the quarantine, the Internet-based communications is continued, and many office buildings left vacant while the need of more spaces for different activities felt in the residential buildings. Converting office buildings into housing is new 'normal' in this post pandemic era.en
