Inside Out is a building concept designed to provide for the experiences of working mothers. Inspired by the increasing number of working mothers in cities like Dubai, the project attempts to bridge the gap between home and work. Inside Out provides an architectural response to a complex social problem by defining a unified space where mothers can work, look after their children, socialize and even seek professional help in their daily lives. In this way, the building acts as a device for acknowledging and alleviating the sacrifices made by working mothers as they attempt to balance two identities that can easily clash.
