Physical x Emotional

Comfort is not easily defined, but it is agreed among fields such as architecture, psychology, and healthcare, that comfort is made up of both physical and emotional aspects. The informing factors of comfort related to architecture are wide-ranging and interconnected. The relationship between physical and emotional comfort is in a dynamic equilibrium, where tangible elements have impact upon intangible experiences. This thesis explores the dimensions of comfort and the parameters contributing to and detracting from comfort within the home.
