The article explores the impact of the pandemic situation on residential functions. In general, the rules of social distance and protection have given residents a different perspective on housing. Suddenly, the home was the whole scene of life, replacing what could no longer be accessed in the public space: socializing, sports, entertainment, work, etc. It was normal then for residential spaces and functions to undergo transformations. These metamorphoses have crept into homes, defining spaces so as to serve the general situation. I analyzed some aspects that the pandemic state has influenced or changed into "different spaces", heterotopias such as those described by the philosopher Michel Foucault. Crisis spaces, in times of crisis.
The research started from his own experience, as an architectural designer, and developed into a broader view of the general situation. The conclusion is that these "different spaces" are the result of human adaptation to the pandemic and prove once again the ability to survive, always looking for a state of balance.
