Abstract

Traditional methods which have focused on hosts have the basis of hosting as an objective act. Hospitality research has given rise to the concept of the commerical home which recognises hybrid space for public as well as private purposes, therefore particularly complex. This study focuses on the host's relationship to space to understand how the product is constructed. In particular how space is displaced is an important focus of the paper. Research methods draw upon interviews, observations and photographs used as conversational aids. Findings in relation to spatial displacement are identified and the importance elaborated. The study highlights the importance of suitable research methods, focusing on moving away from the conventional methods which are limited.
