Concept Statement - Knitting

Knitting represents a process of blending, which represents a wish that people from all over the world will knit into one warm family here. In addition, considering the majority of clients are female, who mostly love knitting at this age, this concept will be welcomed by them.

Rendering Plans

It is positive to encourage elderly people to walk. In extreme weather, they may prefer to walk inside. Consequently, providing an asymmetrical pathway can add visual changes to residentials. Also, a diagonal-designed pathway can extend the length of the path. Besides, applying natural colors, textures, and materials with plants can arouse residents' "biophilia" nature. Colorful knitting working as separation walls decorates the spaces, which creates transparency in different degrees by controlling the tightness of threads.
