The "Brouiller" restaurant design proposal aimed to address the needs of the visually impaired and create an inclusive space for all patrons. Utilizing visual cues in architecture, provided a seamless transition from a blurry exterior environment to an interactive, accessible interior.
"Brouiller" is a prototype restaurant design concept in Paris, emphasizing inclusive design elements such as lighting, color contrast, texture, and acoustics. The project aimed to create a unique and metaphorical experience, symbolized by its name "Blur," which represents the transition from a blurred exterior to an inviting interior space.
The design achieved its vision by thoughtfully integrating sensory elements, guiding visitors from the blurred exterior form to a well-lit, contrasting, and acoustically pleasant interior. The project celebrated the notion that architecture can empower and enrich the lives of individuals with diverse abilities, providing an enhanced sensory experience for both visually impaired and clear-sighted individuals.
