This timely book provides a synthesis of research, theory, and practical application to explore and examine the concept of privacy as both a universal human need and a function of interior design responsibility. While intended for intermediate and advanced design students, Designing for Privacy and Related Needs is useful for a variety of theory and applications courses and presents information about technology in a straightforward manner. Privacy needs and solutions are examined for residential, healthcare, hospitality, and work environments. Age-specific privacy needs are also covered. Students learn that privacy is not a luxury experience but a basic and restorative human need that reduces stress, enhances self-identity and creativity, and enables people to better manage both personal activities and social interactions.
