Severely mental handicapped people mostly live in harsh, prison-cell like conditions, in order to protect themselves and their environment. This housing unit is a testcase to adress this issue in another way.
By greatly exploring new techniques and materials we were able to create an environment that is molest-free and friendly at the same time. Carefully tailored sensory experiences helped creating a rich environment which obviously contributed to a much greater wellbeïng of the particular patient.
