ENVIRONMENTAL PSYCHOLOGY - CASE STUDY + DESIGN RESPONSE

Environmental Psychology is concerned with the impact our surroundings have on our mental well-being. This project is a case study and design response to real combination of comorbid psychological conditions. It aims to create an environment that carefully balances protection from triggers and gentle exposure as a complimentary part of professional treatment. Readiness to help those in need is important but is difficult to maintain. If we begin to design opportunities for growth into our dwellings – we could influence mental health and well-being for the better.

Considering what the client wants while also creating a design response to what the user needs.
