These facilities employ people with educational and social disabilities . Working within a limited budget the aim was to provide the employees with strong sense of identity and at the same time, clearly designate the facilities within the building and their function. This was done using coloured floors and  ‘supergraphics’ ie  large numbers . There was also a large wall painting in the communal dining room and  the administrative offices had a specially designed curtain scheme.
