TINY HOUSE PROJECT
The tiny house project is focused on supporting the disability community and helping the client learn how to be independent. NDIS provides NDIS Supported Independent Living (SIL) which helps the client who struggle to live independently, and this support system helps the client live independently. The house system is having a group home with multiple clients living together or an apartment with one client. The issue with this system is the cost of apartment and housing is increasing and the clients are struggling to pay for their bills. In addition, there is not enough space for housing and the layout of the apartment is too small for the clients. Therefore, redesigning a tiny house is the perfect solution for this situation because it would help the government provide more support and housing assistant since tiny houses are cheaper. The location for the tiny house is located at Grorae, Victoria. This location is perfect since the size of the land would fit the measurements of the tiny house. The reason for choosing this land is that it has enough space to place multiple tiny houses together and form into a community center. This would be successful and easier for the government to fund the disability community and help them achieve their goals.
HSC DESIGN TECHNOLOGY MAJOR – DUYMAK project
Duymak project is based on my personal experience with using Cochlear Implants. I did research and surveys to find out if other users have the same issues as I do and the results were oustanding. Many users did experience similar and new issues that I used to improve the hearing kit. I have designed a fabric kit that can be used for travelling and it is to help motivate the young users to understand how to use and take care of their Cochlear Implant.
The information booklet was designed to be light weight and easy to store in your bag. It was to help the clients understand how to use the Cochlear Implant and it’s accessories that comes with the kit. The reason for redesigning the information booklet was that the current information booklet has complex language and less visuals. In my personal experience, I researched and made surveys to if see my personal issue with the information booklet is the same for others. It turned out they did and that is why I redesigned an information booklet.
