House Designed to Facilitate the Day to Day of a Person with Visual Disability

So & So Studio designed this intelligent, elegant and intuitive home in Vicenza, Italy for a blind woman in Thiene, also in Italy, in which the designers chose to implement a natural process of adjustment and search of the vision for women with visual disabilities to navigate their new space.
It has an area of 232 square meters of construction and was carried out at the beginning of the year 2018.
For a blind homeowner, the learning process of a new environment is vital not only for the function of the space, but also for the daily life within that home. As such, from the first day on, the general theme of the project emerged from a simple glyphic language. Made through complete selections of stone and porcelain materials in which they sought to find the perfect balance of textures to guide the end user of the home between the elements of the program using an integrated map system.
The first step in the design was to orient the spaces around a column of the singular corridor, minimizing any possible labyrinth effect and ensuring an efficient movement throughout the house. In the three main points of the central road are the entrances, which give access from the garage, the entrance door, and the backyard.
