  • 9. How do you design a “home” to fit the experience of being human?
  • 10. Particularly since most homes are shared by more than one person.
  • 11. … and each of us has a unique “experience of home”!
  • 12.
  • 13. Our Homes Are in Our Heads! (But most of us think our “experience of home” is in a building and approach the problem with “how to” methods.) People make most of their choices about their homes based on emotion and instinct…then rationalize their decisions after the fact.
  • 14. At Truehome  , we see a “home” as an ecosystem, so we map the behavior and features of the inhabitants’ system.
  • 15.
  • 16.
  • 17.
  • 18. … and a reasonable amount of media attention.

  • 20. Truehome  Projects Project: Johnston Major psychological influences: Need to control social environment, self expression Major style influences: Desire to be site appropriate; California childhood (arts & crafts) Time spent in rural Italy (lifestyle and dining)
  • 21. Project: Ferester Major psychological influences: , empty nest, fun and family, high level of socialization Major style influences: Rural setting; innovation, antique materials, complex finishes
  • 22. Project: Raymond Major psychological influences: Final home, expression of territory, father’s lighthouse studio Major style influences: Old world architecture; Need for style that allowed tower (lighthouse).
  • 23. Project: Serenity Retreat Center Major psychological influences: Religious scripture, sacred psychological healing. Major style influences: Monasteries, Nature, Biblically referenced materials, symbolic details
