What to consider while remodeling the internal space?
Written by richart khalil   

Spaces are delimited by boundaries, walls. Partitions are necessary; they contain or demarcate activities; separate indoors from outdoors, public spaces from private; and shape the routes we take from one area to another. Moving or removing internal walls and partitions may not make your home any bigger, but thus still enhance the sense of space and eliminate wasted or unused space, improve natural light, and simplify both function and circulation.

How to balance shared and private spaces?
Written by richart khalil   

As the evolution of the family bypasses the old hierarchical system, the big issue become nowadays in getting the right balance between private areas and shared space.

Written by richart khalil   

The entryway to a house projects the owner moods and desires, and it may be similar to the initial posture which the individual presents upon greeting another person.

Emphasis
Written by richart khalil   

The eye is directly oriented to the dominant or emphasized forms, that is why emphasis is an important component of all design elements.
The many gradations of visual accent and subordination can be divided into three major categories: dominant – forms that have the greatest visual impact – subdominant – forms that support the most important or dominant areas – and subordinate – forms that are relatively unimportant in assessing the total design, yet should be visually interesting and exciting in themselves.
