Streetlights - Rebecca Irving
The streetlight was imagined in response to the reality that women feel threatened by cities, night time, and strangers. It acts as a physical representation of safety in the city. It emits light which responds to movement and noise, and also includes brightness and emergency help controls.
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.
