Abstract: Societal ideas about home and domestic space are de eply inculcated. The familiarity, cultural ubiquity and apparently ‘natural’ character of dome stic spaces complicates our understanding of them, rendering them ‘invisible’ or transparent, bo th to their inhabitants and to those who seek to critically understand them. This means that for ms of housing are always slow to change, even when the nature of society and households have changed dramatically, and fixed perceptions remain unquestioned. The scale of the current housing crisis in Dublin demands a highly imaginative and thoroughly planned response, a complete re-think of our approach to the provision and design of dwellings. This kind o f attempt to reimagine domestic space is inevitably met with strong societal resistance.
