The current situation has propagated changes in human behavior and the use of conventional spaces. The spaces that were previously not essential have now become a necessity in our homes, forcing architecture to rethink the new housing model. This thesis will begin by exploring past pandemics to better understand their causes, how the architecture shaped in relation to it and the lessons we need to carry forward. It helps establish the foundation for our research as we will look into the case studies of housing in the 19th and 20th century and apprehend how a crisis leads to innovation. The research will also shed light on the major challenges the residential architecture faces and review the features that are necessary for creating a resilient environment. The awareness of how diseases spread is vital for creating an environment that counters and prevents the transmissions of microbes. The spaces we inhabit and work in can have a significant impact on our mental and physical health. The main objective of this thesis is to analyze and explore what post pandemic architectural housing will look like. This will be achieved by carrying out interventions in existing architectural houses (19th, 20th and 21st Century), whilst also proposing new housing models based on the survey and needs of users.
