How the AFB Center on Vision Loss Serves Architects and Designers
There are multiple ways of helping people who live with limited eyesight to function more safely and effectively in any given environment, and many ideas can be seen in Esther's Place at the American Foundation for the Blind Center on Vision Loss.
We have various types of lighting installed throughout the 1,800 square-foot
demonstration model home, as well as examples of texture and color contrast, aging-in-place accommodations, and access technologies that can make a big difference in the
life of anyone coping with vision loss.
It doesn't have to be ugly, either. Using color contrast for example, not only makes things easier to see, but can make the space pleasing to the eye.
