Multi residential living has become the norm as we reach for the stars with our vertical homes. However, will our desire to live in close proximity to others change and what would this mean for designers and their clients? Will the design of foyers, public spaces and shared amenity require a re-think and what would that look like in our post Covid 19 world? If architecture changes will interior design follow suit?
