Facelike House Façades (07-26-22)

Roessler, Weber, Tawil, and Kuhn evaluated human responses to various housing facades, by getting people in Denmark, Germany, and Canada to provide their impressions of images of Canadian homes.  The investigators report that “the present study aimed at characterizing potentially central aspects in the judgement of house facades and identified that the dimensions: friendliness, liking and invitingness, as well as safety and freedom seem to be of importance. Facelikeness however, although previously discussed with respect to house facades, does not seem to play a major role in explicit ratings of participants.”
