RIBA research reveals demand for UK home transformations

New research commissioned by the Royal Institute of British Architects reveals a significant impact of the coronavirus pandemic on how people want to live and work at home.

Spending more time in their home has made people more stressed (11%), anxious (10%) and depressed (10%); they've found it harder to relax (9%) and it's negatively impacted their productivity (6%).
