"Lochamara lodge is especially a feel good place for everything you can't find there:
No traffic, no tv, no shops, no stress, no (mechanical) noise. (Hammock) heaven on earth."
Thai House (Thap Khwan Palace)
A traditional Thai house (Thap Khwan Palace); There is a common area which is a big terrace in the middle of the house. From the picture, there are 3 of feeling good things. TREE creates some shade, shadow and reduces heat from the sun to the whole area, and then the terrace becomes a comfort zone. SPACE UNDER THE AWNING is a pathway between terrace and the private room. People always use as same as the terrace in case that the terrace is too hot. The floor is raised from the terrace about 40 cm to be a chair and air-intake for cool down the hot temperature in the house. MATERIAL AND CONSTRUCTION; Thai house is made by natural material such as wood board and roof clay tiles. To construct Thai house, we use only pins and pegs to join the boards together. It is easy to build but strong and comfortable.
"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."
The space is spacious. It has no rectangular corners, but bent, curved walls and no flat ceiling but a dome. The light comes from every direction, and is diffused. The colours are natural. The artificial light are uplighters that give a natural and not blinding light. The construction is visable on the insight. The building gives a relaxing "feel".
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.
Van Nelle Fabriek
Juriaan van Meel
The "Van Nelle" factory is a master piece of Dutch architecture that has proved to be functional over time. Once it was a factory for tea and tabacco. Now it accommodates small companies from the design sector. Inside you can still feel the light and air; atmosphere that was so exceptional at the time when the factory was built. I admire the building because it has 'character'. Character is a quality that is hard to grasp, but it is certainly a quality that is not often found in new buildings. Buildings like this (coverted warehouses, factories, etc.) should get more attention from both the academic and professional world to tease out design principles that help to improve new design.

House N, designed by Japanese architect Sou Fujimoto, is a living place defined by three boxes with different sizes. The architect not only creates a new boundary between the house and surrounding environment, but also breaks through the conventional layout which usually separates our living place into different rooms. It creates a opportunity to make userâ€™s life infiltrate into the city smoothly due to this in-between space which is created by three boxes and their voids. Unconsciously, the private living space is extended from inside to outside, from a house into a city. The richness of spatial levels is building a free and comfortable atmosphere for a living space.
Hotel New York

Is it the memory on times that definitely are gone by? My grandparents leaving from here to visit their son in the USA? Or is it the magnificent view on the river? Rotterdam feels good, this is where my roots are. This building is for me the feelgoodbuilding in special.
Jewel Changi Airport
- "This airport has an atrium with endless paths you can roam around. The indoor space makes you feel like you're in a forest."

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.
Thermal bath by Peter Zumthor
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.

a small 2d circle-weblike object before the WildWest started; it is supposed to separate good from evil dreams.
a giant 3D object from the MiddleEast which is supposed to have magical power in the point of gravity.
To join these beautifull polarities really made me feel good. Drawing peace & harmony.
So happy & sweet dream to all of you. And beware; they will come true!!!
What you see is what you get, here i want to be all day!
Unfortunately it is for climate, safety or what ever it wil be, not possible or it is rather hard
in spite of this argument, i don't understand the reason why we usualy build by mass instead of transparancy most houses are build like monopoly: walls, a roof and some smoke.
the sun stays outside and the oil (so long there is) burns inside. In stead off starting with a concrete structure and making windows on positions were we want contact with the outside,
I sugest: we start with a open bear-structure, keeping wind and rain ouitside with a glasswall, blind locally your privacy and keep your field of vision further than the curtain"
