The collective, calmspaces, sets out to create spaces for relaxation and contemplation through traditional architectural approach combined with modern digital technology. The ongoing project of the collective, breathing space (ademruimte in Dutch), uses unobtrusive sensing technology to monitor one's breathing, and through designed light and sonic guides, the project tries to enhance the breathing exercise beneficial to regulating oneﾒs emotion. The paper illustrates the project and its relevance to and potential for in-vehicle development. We then discuss the details of our implementations, along with video documentations of the early prototype, and a recently completed installation work.
