The Green Space

User-centered design // Creative Conscience Winner 2016 - Silver

Providing a sense of independence for people with Dementia is an incredibly important component in maintaining quality of life. The Green Space was created to be used as a multi-functional garden that no only

offers independence, but also creates a journey - providing a communal area to explore, reminisce and relax.

The Green Space also serves as a form of sensory stimulation therapy through the incorporation of a wayfinding system which guides residents through areas focussed on, and highlighting each of the five senses. We also created a series of  recipe cards that aimed to help guide residents through the garden on a journey to collect fruit and vegetables from the different areas of the garden.
