Better, Greater, or otherwise different from what is usual. Currently, Sassafras Studios has over 10 active projects on the board.
One being our latest design+build- design for new Kids building, by transforming a average classroom into a Multi-Sensory room for Special Needs children.
While researching, I’ve come to find as a designer, the challenge to put several components in a room and still have it look intentional and beautiful all at one time.
In addition, we believe strongly that both parents and workers should also enjoy the room layout in how it works for them.
From Neon and Black lighting to LED water bubble tubes and Fiber Optics we are designing a component that will stand floor to ceiling smack dab in the middle of the room with a “Cone of silence” shield half way up. I know epic right?!? Another fun element amoung a rock climbing wall is a swing that looks like its from the Jetsons. It’s low to the floor but will make kids feel safe and snug by incorporating weighted blankets and fun colored cushions.
While we’ve been developing the conceptual design, my heart strings were pulled deeply to the future kids who will be in this room. Being from a crazy large family and having been adopted, I want all kids to feel both safe while being free to explore.
Materials and design alone can’t make someone feel loved, but in essence, I hope our design can help achieve a thoughtful intentionality that speaks volumes for each child who visits.
