For the last few decades, one of most popular debates of environmental discourse is the redefinition and interpretation of concepts of 'house' and 'home'. The main intention that lies under such a conceptual distinction is to provide better dwelling conditions through a more humanistic approach to the existing problems of housing. From this point of view, 'house' can be determined as a physical entity that provides space for the household, where as 'home' is a complex system which defines and is defined by cultural, sociodemographic, psychological, political and economic factors. The complexity of the nature of homes and the presence of various studies from various disciplines results to an overdose of descriptions and that are mostly complementary but some inevitably contradictory. Basically, home; a complex system with provisions of spatial and temporal orientation, is a physical product, a cultural artifact, a social construct and a base for psychological resonance.
