Communal Spaces in Supported Living Accommodation

Brief: To transform a soulless ground floor area into inviting communal spaces

Design Inspiration: Considering how residents should feel in each of the rooms

The project began by removing internal walls to reconfigure the space into three usable areas. One was developed into a stimulating sensory space, the second into a relaxing living room and the third into an inviting activity room for crafts and other pursuits.

I created environments that were welcoming and calming whilst incorporating a touch of fun. Every decision had to be achievable with a limited budget and stand up to the demands of the home.  Considered use colour, texture, natural light and sensory lighting, along with images of nature achieved a desirable result.

What they said

“Thank you, the service users love their space and we are finding that they are a lot calmer and easier to manage in stressful situations.”
