Agreed on the question of why would u want a triangular space if u did not want it to look/feel triangular? that is the point.

i have to design to context and the site is surrounded, unfortunately, by 3 hotel towers on all 3 sides of the stupidly triangular site (which has a small land area in fact). To max my floor plan, i have to adopt the triangular shape, if not, i would be quite impossible to manipulate connective spaces in the cafe i m designing for.

Plus. i have taken a look at garden designs. Huh? i dont understand wat techniques are available. i would supposed using curved walls will make the angled spaces a more "rounded" feel? Agree?

I remember an architect having this building of illusion. Walking up a ramp, but feeling you are on flat ground and when walking on flat ground, u feel like u are walking down a ramp. i want to explore into this, but i cant find the architect who did this illusory effect. any ideas of whom i can look up on regarding such strategies? Or do anyone have any good ideas?

Thanks, man.
