Patterns of Home Life: Informing Design For Domestic Environments
This paper considers how we may provide support for the development of general design principles in domestic environments. In particular we examine the potential for using design patterns as a means of presenting ethnographic material and outlining design solutions. The paper reports on the development of an initial pattern language based on our studies of a number of domestic environments and offers a general structure for presenting these patterns. Finally, we briefly reflect on our experiences of developing an on-line set of patterns for this class of environments. Keywords. Domestic Environments, Ethnography, Systems Design, Pattern Language, Design Patterns.
