st. damiano, residential community for people with mental disabilities
colour concept and three-dimensional communications
stuttgart 2011

a sequence of cheerful colours, a syncopated rhythm that disrupts and structures the tedious row of doors and corridors. every place becomes identifiable, in the simplest terms: for example, the lime green door with dark brown stripe is next to the bright red wall. for the residents – people who have had mental disabilities since birth – the combination of colour and form offers a way of quickly and easily finding the doors to their rooms. a helpful aid for people with cognitive impairments that makes the spaces so much more attractive for visitors and staff as well.
