Here are how designs effect the way users feel:

That tigers users to watch their steps. Looking up in a state of mind- which is a lower point than expected- users will feel the building they are walking into; to be even higher and mightier with more direct effect. 

*usually stairs like this are used only in entrances.


Organic Designs

Organic designs usually are represented by splines and curves, designer’s malleable pen can be viewed in both facades and plans. 

Organic architecture tigers right-minded form of thinking, where users will be eye-following formed architecture lines. In a state of mind provoking personal comparable experience, users will feel creativity, innovation and vision.
