residential ENVIRONMENTAL PSYCHOLOGY -
CASE STUDY + DESIGN RESPONSE
Residential Environmental Psychology: A Case Study + Design Response is a self-guided, practice-based research thesis that combines literature reviews, professional insight and direct ethnographic input to design a response to a single person’s co-morbid psychological condition. In this way, it critiques the 'architectural brief' and suggests a need for a deeper understanding of the client.
This project references fields outside of architecture such as psychology and occupational therapy to design for those suffering from a mental illness or condition. It aims to inform responses that nourish and restore these individuals during traditional mental health care avenues in order to reduce the need for clinical intervention.
