FELICE, Magdalena. “The house of friendship”: Ways to build and mean the own home in young people of the city of Buenos Aires. Ultima décad. [online]. 2017, vol.25, n.46, pp.117-146. ISSN 0718-2236.

On the basis of a qualitative-interpretative strategy, the article analyzes the experiences of young middle class people living in a shared house from the City of Buenos Aires during the process of building their own home. Among the results, it is highlighted that friends constitute a fundamental emotional support, while the partnership with peers allows facing the challenge of leaving the origin family home and building a home of their own. In turn, the "house of friendship" is presented as a space of youth sociability that contributes to the conformation of subjectivity.
