Morten Kjærbye, Charlotte Sommer, Ali Ibrahim & Mette Høgh Vigh

Studenteropgave: Semesterprojekt


With a phenomenological approach and through qualitative interviews, the purpose of this project is to investigate the experience and effect of DARE2’s meditation room. Furthermore the project includes theory about atmosphere, architecture psychology, perception, flow and relaxation. Starting from this, the intention is to use case-study as inspiration for a re-design of a room to take a break in. In addition to this the project explores which characteristics the room should include, to have an atmosphere that invites the user to take a break and relax. A main conclusion of the project is that the people getting interviewed only uses the meditation room if they can relate to meditation, which is the room's intention. If this is the case people will experience the atmosphere of the room according to its designed intention. If people do not posses the skills of meditation, the room can easily appear empty and meaningless. This indicates that the room's atmosphere can directly depend on the person's involvement in relation to the intention of the room. On the other hand the room's intention affect whether residents can engage in it or not.
