(sound on) DESIGN SPEAK ▶️ For every design element in a built environment there is an intended reaction. Enter the tenants of environmental psychology and hospitality design. Enter the Angad Arts Hotel in St. Louis. AAH's facade, entrance, and reception gallery poke at your ability to be curious. The initial space pulls you into its world and away from yours. You are encouraged to experience life in a different way. Once inside the vestibule you will explore the wall art, sit upon the communal chair bench, open doors of intrigue, and think about finding the reception desk. The atypical wayfinding strategy forces you to think differently. You are now primed and ready for a unique hospitality experience that embraces the psychology of color, visual and performance arts, fashion, literature, mixology, and gastronomy. Where's the front desk?
The same tenants used in hospitality design apply to residental design. Recall your favorite hotel. You know the one. It's the one that draws you into the lobby. The one where you could sit in the lobby for hours with a glass of wine and a good book. The special place that just makes you let go of your life outside. That's how you should feel when you walk into your home. You should be feeling that ah ha moment in your own space. This is acheived not by the decorative accessories but the space planning, the color scheme, the lighting plan, and wayfinding strategies. Make your space a place that makes you feel good.
