My favorite thing about buildings is the way they have the power to affect how I feel.
Have you noticed this?
A really massive concrete building might make you feel tiny, and maybe even a bit nervous. A small, dark entryway feels pretty uncomfortable. Smells and textures within a building can give you a feeling of curiosity. Pathways and playful spotlights of natural lighting can make you feel excited, like you're on an adventure.
When you're creating your future home (your new build or renovation), you have the opportunity to choose how people will feel in your home.
That is pretty powerful.
It's a good idea to start thinking early on in the design process what it is you want people to feel when they're at your home.
