Our contemporary service economy calls the divide between living and working, one of the dogmas of modernist urbanism, into question. People increasingly work from home, in dwellings that were never designed for this purpose. 'DASH' and researcher-architect Frances Holliss take a closer look at the phenomenon of working from home and its impact on our domestic culture. How do you provide suitable home-work environments for an extremely varied group of people who work from their homes? At the level of the urban building block, 'DASH' explores what such architectural and urban developments may bring.
