Abstract

Interior design can create an experience for someone through colors and light by acting as an identifier of the type of space it might be. When choosing a color palette for a project, it can develop an insight into how any space can affect our emotions based on color psychology and ambiance. Esthetix Dentistry medical office and thesis, Haven Amenity ICE Detention Center, are both accompanying individuals who will be experiencing stress and anxiety upon arrival. It is known that many individuals experience high anxiety and stress levels when going to the dentist because of the procedures that take place during their appointment. For the thesis, Haven Amenity, detainees that are brought to ICE Detention Centers are already in a state of the unknown and worry about what their end result might be. To reduce these two factors to create a better experience for these individuals, research was completed to see how color psychology can benefit certain spaces and how the human brain connects with certain colors. Both blue and green hues were known to help decrease stress and anxiety as blue is known to be associated with calmness. Incorporating blue and green hues in the spaces through materials and adding an exceptional amount of windows to enhance daylight in the space lead to the final concept for these two projects.
