Model of a 'safe wing'- Advice cafe - Asya Gumus This diagram shows one example of a 'safe wing'. The ground floor is designed for quick and short term access/ support making it easy for residents to drop in without an appointment and seek support over the counter. The staff are dementia trained and will have the skills to support elderly resident needs. The upper levels are designed for longer stay where private councelling can be arranged and support group meetings can take place. Transparency, signage and familiarity within the design allow locals to feel comfortable when visiting.
Concept Development - the programme / the influence / the form - Fiona Wylie The programme influences the form, splitting the building into 3 wings containing its 3 uses, tapering through use, to learn or to apply knowledge. The linear placement of programme reflects the journey of production: learning how to, seeing it done, and then doing it yourself. In each wing, there is a round central gathering point to break up the orthogonal qualities of the production spaces in the building, and promote community interaction. Looking at the exterior form, the perimeter of the building is parallel to the boundaries of the historical 5m tall perimeter wall of the site, whilst the interior is splayed to maximise south light for greenhouse production. When the concept meets the context, inspiration was taken from the typical solid Tradeston block with u-shaped voids, mixed with the tower typologies of the historical Tradeston tower in its context, the classic agriculture silo, the tree, the typical greenhouse, and tradeston's peaked roofs, to come to a final form.

Proposed care model - Asya Gumus This diagram shows the proposed care model establishing the location and different scales of the interventions.
Cinema Section - Anthony Mazeli This section shows the cinema functionality through sight lines and projector throw. It also depicts the building programme with a spacious bar area on the ground level to encourage socialisation while maintaining a safe distance, hall areas with alternating floating bridges leading to cinema, and a gallery area on the 5th floor.
Connectivity of an Open City - Ami Coulter Toward an Open City is an important infrastructure though it does not solve all the problems – as there can be no final solution. Through providing a renewed circular programme of interventions which continuously feed each other, it provides new and varied modes of citizen engagement at different scales, in different locations. Ultimately, building a climate which is more open; accepting of the other, adaptable, respectful and understanding. Inspired by Guy Debord, Psychogeographical guide to Paris 1957. Lazzaroni, 2012.

Model of the carers hub - Asya Gumus This building is split in to the three. The ground floor invites the locals to join in coworker activities/ workshops and start up businesses, the middle floor proposes an activity space for both elderly residents with dementia and carers and the tower proposes private studio spaces that view the neighbourhood.
Conservation Approach: Concept - Amy Aquilina
Interior view of the carers hub - Asya Gumus This space is used as a joint activity space for both elderly with dementia and carers. Regularly organized movie nights, exhibitions, theatre and concerts will be held in this space for the locals to enjoy.
Example of a 'safe wing'- Laundrette - Asya Gumus The laundrette is the most important medium sized intervention in this context as it is promotes an easy and independent activity that is also familiar to an elderly person. Informal encounters/ conversations can have a positive impact on an elderly persons daily life. The chosen coral/ yellow tones encourage social activity and invite the elderly to spend a longer times with their neighbours and other locals.
Approach to the 'safe wing' model - Asya Gumus Each safe wing involves a different activity. Other designs include gardening and sensory therapy that reduces stress and anxiety that can surface due to progressing dementia. Each safe wing will include a different colour/ character/ material in accordance to the interventions use, such as red promoting energy, motivation and activity and blue promoting a calmer and less stressful environment. These colours are important for elderly design as it can slow the process of the developing dementia amongst the ageing population.
