ASID Foundation Publishes First Whitepaper on on Evidence-Based Design for Residential Design

Published year: 

WASHINGTON, D.C. (November 20, 2012) | The ASID Foundation has announced the publication of the first professional guide to evidence-based design for residential designers, Home Making: Evidence-Based Design for Residential Environments.

Until now, the power of evidence-based design research was primarily available to commercial and healthcare designers. With the publication of Home Making, interior designers can now access essential information needed to incorporate research into the design of residential environments, including:

- Case studies on how space planning, acoustics, visual elements, materials and indoor air quality can improve a client’s experience of home.
- Research that focuses on individual areas of the home, such as bedrooms and kitchens.
- Resources to help designers find the most currently published research.

Developed by environmental psychologist, Dr. Sally Augustin, and an experienced interior designer, Barbara Miller, ASID, Home Making is both an introduction and an essential resource for any designer wishing to take their practice to the next level.
