We’re always in a place. It should be the best space for us to live our life, but often it isn’t.

Place Advantage:  Applied Psychology for Interior Architecture explains how to create spaces and objects that enhance our world.  It shows readers how to enrich human experience using scientifically derived concepts for person-centered design.  Place Advantage:  Applied Psychology for Interior Architecture offers concrete design solutions that can be immediately applied to craft places in which people thrive and objects that satisfy important psychological needs.

In Place Advantage: Applied Psychology for Interior Architecture, applied environmental psychologist Sally Augustin offers insights into how elements of the physical environment influence human attitudes and behaviors. She introduces the general principles of place science and shows how factors such as colors, scents, textures, and the spatial composition of a room, as well as personality and culture, impact the experience of a place. These principles are applied to multiple building types, including residences, workplaces, healthcare facilities, schools, and retail spaces.
