Living Spaces / Institut des Jeunes Sourds et Aveugles de Marseille (IRSAM). The site was a home for blind and mentally impaired young adults in Marseille. The project was to design four common living spaces (2 completed) which would encompass the needs for privacy, flexibility, durability and visual stimulation. The design included the walls, floor, mobile seating areas, storage units, aquariums and a tactile and magnetic wall surface for administrative and educational use.
