For my undergrad thesis, I designed an economic rehabilitation for the visually impaired. An existing campus of an eye hospital was chosen to create a seamless transition for patients into rehabilitation.
Economic Rehabilitation Centre for the Visually Impaired
Economic Rehabilitation Center for the Visually Impaired
Site analysis, zoning
Building exterior - designed to cater to the partially visually impaired
Planning - ground floor plans and circulation of users through it
Flooring plan - different flooring materials enhance wayfinding
Illumination plan - increased lighting levels for partially visually impaired
Sensory details - for the rehabilitee to create a stronger spatial association
Site planning involved making design decisions.
The structural systems were based on steel trusses and reinforced concrete columns mostly due to high heat and humidity.
Sewage, Electricty and Water Supply lines were designed for maximum efficiency and utility.
Stormwater drainage was planned in consideration to existing waterbody (for groundwater recharge) and drainage channels adjacent to site.
