The form language is designed to differentiate itself from past case study homes that have a more rectilinear presence. Sana is meant to feel more natural, soft and have an organic flow. In my research, i found that spaces with 90 degree turns disrupt the natural flow of human circulation. Reducing the angle of the turn actually helps residents maintain better balance, use less muscle and increase stability when walking through a space. The plan and circulation of the SANA home will work in that favor.
