Interior Space is a reference book for designers and environmental psychologists that presents a new and valuable technique for assessing clients needs, preferences, and feelings. This technique is unique in the way that it uses environmental psychology as part of the designing process for residential projects. The authors have identified 10 psychological needs having to do with people's behavior in, and feelings about their home and work environments. They have found that individuals differ in how strongly they feel about these needs. For example, one individual might have strong feelings about a need for order while having weak needs for variety, and this feeling would strongly influence the designs which a designer would present. Using this need satisfying approach provides a meaningful way for clients to participate in the design process with results in unique and highly creative design concepts which mesh with clients wishes.
