Design For Disability
The service philosophy and client/student profile should be the starting point of the design to produce a one off exciting solution based on the individual outcomes. Our design is centered around the people using the building, their experiences and those working with them.
Small spaces for medication, withdrawal, calming or reductions in distractions are designed off main spaces. Environments are created that are safe for clients and staff that cater for a range of behaviors. Creativity of the disabled is nurtured and spaces are designed to assist further development of the users rather than an institution where growth is diminished.
The design for the disabled should be uplifting, creative and offer dignity to the users as well as support and options for staff to maximise their productivity.
