Abstract

This paper fulfills an understanding of how gender-aware design might influence future housing developments and spatial designs. The study mainly aims to clarify the relationship between gender and housing design seeks answers to how gender-aware design might influence future housing developments and tries to make a comprehensive contribution to academia on housing with a special issue on gender-based dwelling architecture. The study aims to present suggestions for future housing developments, spatial planning, and furnishing designs to improve the quality of space design of future houses. To achieve this purpose, firstly, comprehensive deep research has been realized on gender, gender-related design, and gender influence on housing with the question of ‘how might gender-aware design influence future housing developments?’. Secondly, case analyses were used to demonstrate the impacts of gender on the spatial planning of houses with two iconic samples in the architectural literature; the spatial organization of traditional Turkish houses (Hayatlı Ev), and modernist Minimum Dwelling. These two case analyses empower valuable data on gender-related house planning, space organization, equipment selection, furniture, and material design, which are linked with gender issues. Cases have been selected especially for their gender-aware designs, iconic spatial features, socio-cultural status, and lifestyles; the traditional Turkish house ‘Hayatlı Ev’ and the ideological modern ‘Minimum Dwelling’, which delegate comparative analyses and distinctive spatial, and socio-cultural features. In the end, the study aims to develop design parameters and bring out innovative and avant-garde design methods for future houses by using gender-aware architecture.
