Squarepeg. Design primarily focuses on Neuroinclusive Design. A new and progressive thinking behind how we design inclusive spaces that allow people feel comfortable in the environment for which they occupy at any given time.
To allow people to be themselves, to be a space without being ostracised or made to feel different purely because of how space and people are interpreted.
I'm Catherine Rayner, the founder of Squarepeg. Design. I hold at First Class BA Hons. Degree for Interior Design.
My studies and research into Neurodiversity and the Built Environment led to challenging mainstream design, for my conslusion considers many secondary spaces are not designed to meet the sensory stimuli of Neurodivergent individuals who use our spaces. This equates to between 20% and 25% of our population.
Designing for the minority improves spaces for the majority.
Squarepeg. Design is about creating spaces that are inclusive for all. Neurodiversity, Disability, Race, Gender, Age and Religion are continually assessed and considered in all design and consultancy roles.
As people we are more informed about our differences and how we fit into society. Our spaces need to reflect a more informed social model of how people interpret the built environment.
Whether it's the office layout, or way finding in public spaces and so on, Squarepeg. Design understands the obstacles and differences that minority groups encounter. Thus designing to accomplish the most favourable design for all to enjoy.
Research continues into this emerging field of design.
Squarepeg. Design continually collaborates with Industry leaders within Inclusive Design.
Only through talking and understanding lived experiences and building on medical research, we together can create functional, productive and sustainable spaces for everyone.
