Designing for privacy and related needs
This book provides a synthesis of research, theory, and practical application to explore and examine the concept of privacy as a function of interior design responsibility. Filled with cutting-edge material, the text presents information in a straightforward manner. Privacy needs and solutions are examined for residential, healthcare, hospitality, and work environments. Age-specific privacy needs are also covered. Students learn that privacy is not a luxury experience but a basic and restorative human need that reduces stress, enhances self-identity and creativity, and enables people to better manage both personal activities and social interactions.
