        Abstract
        This article tells the stories of houses ‘designed through use’
        in unexpected ways. These stories take place in the psychiatric
        field, following the deinstitutionalisation movement.
        Caregivers left asylums and decided to work together with
        patients in small-scale centres in the city. Teams of caregivers
        acquired existing houses, used them and transformed them
        to establish new care practices. This article describes the
        process of ‘design through use’ by means of a close look at
        the material and mental changes that took place in the built
        environment through the process of usage. These transformations
        resulted from the crossbreeding with previous uses,
        the actual practices, and the involved actors. This article
        argues for the acknowledgment of ‘design through use’ as
        an architectural heritage.
