TRANSITION - Site Section - As the project is for the visually impaired and blind, creating contrast between the openings and the building was crucial. Using colour, texture and a secondary facade helped to do so.

TRANSITION - Site Plan - The front of the site accommodates the housing, keeping it in line with the living on either side of the site. Whereas the Assembly Hall is at the back of site. This creates the look of scenography - an idea used to create contrast by adding the secondary facade.

TRANSITION - House Section - The secion shows how the houses would be accommodated. These would be used by families who have a visually impaired or blind member, to use as a temporary housing, to learn how to navigate life.

TRANSITION - Flats Section - This type of housing would be used by anybody who needs help figuring out the life of a visually impaired or blind person.

TRANSITION - First Floor Plan of Flats - The floor plan shows the flats and how they would be used. The idea behind the layout is to create straight lines and have a circular element in the middle to help navigate the different spaces of the flats. The flooring also creates a language of navigation - the contrats between the materials - timber and tiles, warm and cold, non-textured and textured.

TRANSITION - Assembly Hall Section - The Assembly Hall follows the same idea as the flats - straight lines and a circular element in the middle. The Assmebly Hall building consists off two activity rooms that are used by the residents of the site, an experience room where anybody can experience what it is like to be blind or visually impaired, and the main Assembly Hall space where the residents can share their stories and how they get through the day.

TRANSITION - The element - Wall Textures - The element study consisted off exploration into different wall textures, thinking about materials, textures, colours. The final idea was to create navigational elements imbedded into the walls.
