My final project is a transitional home for foster youths. I wanted to create a space that provides a place where they can call home, feel safe and help them transition into independent living. My aim was to create a community in which they can meet people in similar situations as themselves and provide support for mental health, which many often face within the system. I was Inspired from the principles of biophilic design to create a space that can help to alleviate stresses and anxieties through the use of free-flowing design that is not over stimulating. This approach aims to create a calming environment along with neutral colours with accents of greenery throughout the design.
