The seat in my friends car
This is the seat in my friends car. It is well designed and well made seat from leather and has a seat heating function. But personally for me it is feelgood space because I feel safe there. Is it because of good design or quality of the car, or my friend who is driving - I do not know, but every time I am there I feel good.

- "This airport has an atrium with endless paths you can roam around. The indoor space makes you feel like you're in a forest."

The building postulates feeling good inside toughness. The interior is dedicated to raising comfort and atmosphere. The fresh air, the passive cooling system, the visual comfort, the temperature, the individual overrides to the heating, ventilation and shading make up a building that feels good and keeps people healthy -proven. The atrium, finished in clay stucco, makes the building breath: air and light enter the building from all sides. It was given the qualification "the best building ever" by Building Services Journal.
Maison La Roche
This is a transitional space between the dark staircase space and the room full of light it is leading to. The change of illumination level in the two space is done subtly by introducing natural light to inside from windows - they are arranged to posses full range of the wall in a horizontal manner that well frame the trees outside. The space is generous as a transitional one for stairs, as it is big enough for good natural ventilation and leaves you a comfortable place to stand next to the window and look to the outside view. The windows, dived into several operable ones, provide the possibility to control temperature and ventilation speed in different situations. The not so beautiful heater, well hidden in the shadow, also leaves the outside view the major role in this space.

The journey through the mountains of Graubunden ends in the rocks. The building is a block of rough, grey, local stone in which the spaces are cut out like caves. The ceilings, the walls, the floors are pure rock; they belong here. Stone looks like stone and wood looks like wood. When you pull the lever of a shower you get what you expect: a drowning flush of ice water. The light is dim, but sufficient to find your way. Daylight strikes the granite surfaces and accentuates the building's structures. In each area the visitor is actually aware of it's specific mix of temperature, humidity, sound, lighting and smell. This mix determines the room, for instance in the cave where you sit down and sweat in a dark and foggy room, incredibly hot, where no wall is visible, only faint orange light and steam.
The heart of the house
Kitchen is the heart of the house. It always welcomes you with its warming atmosphere and delectable smell... It is the place that conversations are always keep going.
Vincent van Gogh
If painted good, it's worth millions.
sometimes the place that i feel good is not really about where it is or what it looks like, but the people that i stay with, like in this picture, a group of friends sit together, so it is the best space.
"This is the Red Auditorium in the movie theater in Krakow called Kino Pod Baranami.
The cinema, situated in the Palace at the Main Square, was founded in 1969 and the history of the the building can be still felt inside.
Especially in the Red Auditorium. Red velvet armchairs, dim light from chandeliers and decorated wooden ceiling create a nostalgic atmosphere.
The dimensions of the room, materials and colours (also hidden technical equipment like speakers and air conditioners) make me feel intimate in this interior
and affect the image and sound of the film. The cameral surrounding helps to experience and focus more on a movie.
It feels like moving back in time to the era of black and white pictures."
"When I walk into this space it feels like I have walked into another world. Especially if it is particularly sunny outside, the sudden change into a dark and monumental space makes me feel a sense of peace and anticipation of something great.
The scale of the space and sloping gradient of the floor always overwhelms me the way a good space should. I especially enjoy the space has no exhibitions and I can wonder around looking up at the emptiness."
Inside of trainstation
Imagine if you are waiting for a train to go somewhere. It is no matter where you go or what you do. The train station is a transition space, where we can expect of next place. It is a kind of same feeling that the day before the night of field trip is more excited than the day.
Joke van Berkum
"Back to the womb. Relaxing, reflecting, reading, recharging."
It is very very quiet inside. The only thing you hear are the birds from outside. A very meditative place indeed. The spaces are empty and ordered like a painting of Mondriaan. No furniture except for a few paintings, a couple of cushions and a few vases with Ikebana. Balanced natural lighting partly with the help of translucent rice paper doors. Extraordinary interaction between the Zen garden and the interior, open facades when wanted, closed when needed.

It is a sinergy between craftmanship and high tec into a spiritual room
