e New Emotions of Home book
Home is dened as a haven in the turbulent seas of urban life (Appleyard 1970). It embodies the familiar, a place where residents are comfortable and feel at ease. Home anchors place identity by providing a locale perceived as “ours” that acts as a symbol of self (Marcus 1976; Marcus 1997). us, a home is not simply a place to live, but encompasses a wide variety of personal concerns such as aspirations, motivations, and values, as well as physical well-being and lifestyle choices (Hayward 1975; Feldman 1990). e emotions associated with this concept of home are predominantly positive including feelings of love, warmth, trust, and understanding combined with comfort, relaxation, and security. Home, however, is also a defended place, even a fortied castle, where residents retreat from the outside world (Ladd 1977, Fried 2000).
