Intimacy Gradient and Other Lessons from Architecture

- Intimacy Gradient and Other Lessons from Architecture

Pattern #127 - Intimacy Gradient:

Conflict: 
Unless the spaces in a building are arranged in a sequence which corresponds to their degrees of privateness, the visits made by strangers, friends, guests, clients, family, will always be a little awkward.

Resolution: 
Lay out the spaces of a building so that they create a sequence which begins with the entrance and the most public parts of the building, then leads into the slightly more private areas, and finally to the most private domains.
