This report describes our "intuitive house", a house where every room is located precisely where expected, and where every light switch is in a logical location. It does this by relying upon what people's expectations are on objects, by designing simply, yet intuitively. This involved the study of how people relate to their environment through architecture, interior design, and psychology. From the results of our research we created a home based on people's perceptions and understanding of the world around them.
