1. An environment control system for controlling space experiences within a defined space within a facility, the system comprising:

  • a lighting device located within the space, the lighting device controllable to generate a plurality of visually distinguishable lighting effects within the space;

    a sensor for sensing user activities within a first space;

    at least one emissive surface;

    a controller linked to the sensor, the at least one emissive surface and to the lighting device, the controller programmed to perform the steps of;

    sensing occupancy of the space;

    sensing a user parameter associated with a posture of the user that occupies the space; and

    controlling the lighting device to generate at least one of the plurality of lighting effects when the space is unoccupied, to generate another of the plurality of lighting effects when the space is occupied, and identifying at least a portion of the at least one emissive surface for use based on a user parameter associated with the posture of the user.
