When I was in architecture school, I learned that it was important that buildings had a “sense of entry” – an obvious, easily recognized entrance so visitors are not left to wonder where they are supposed to go; it also serves as a way to define people’s impression of the building and their orientation to it. There are cultural elements to consider. There are psychological elements that make a difference. The way the building faces matters. The weather is important.  How people with disabilities find their way is a critical consideration. The time of day, the numbers of people who will arrive at one time, the aesthetics of the building and its immediate environment, the building materials and colors all play a part in setting the sense of entry.

Failing that, of course, a sign painted on a hunk of wood and then stuck on a wall will suffice.
