We as human beings spend more than 90% of our time indoors. Thus, the space in which we live, work, and play exerts psychological effects on us every single day. The concept of Emotional Interior Architecture is creating an all-inclusive space for its occupants, both introverts, and extroverts, that fosters an atmosphere of motivation and creativity. This is achieved by utilizing six specific layers that coalesce to bring a sense of joy and belonging to each person that steps foot inside. This unique approach to interior design has transformed the student union at Mercyhurst University’s North East campus in North East, PA.
