House society is a combination of well-oriented and multi-functionally spaces. That prompts a wellness experience for users who live in this community. To further explain my concept statement, house society has the potential to make the users have more interaction in reality instead of virtual connections. House society promotes wellness through the private individual unit, and communal space by making users share moments and activities through physical connections.

People are generally happier decades ago. The reason why they are happier is because they are living as a unit. They talk to each other and help each other. I did a research and I found a TikTok which was released in 2015, a psychiatrist and director of the Harvard study of adult development, Dr. Robert Waldinger said “good relationships keep us happier and healthier” and he also talked about how social connections are good for us, and loneliness kills our happiness. This turns out that people who are more socially connected to family, to friends, to the community tend to be happier than those who isolate themselves.

Experiencing loneliness is toxic, the reason shows these people that their brain functions decline and live shorter than people who are not lonely. Study the way people connect to each other from decades ago and improving the experience of sharing by more advanced programs within the living space is my strategy to design this wellness apartment unit.
