I have designed Kerr’s office based around her love for peace and meditation, along with her career of modeling and her beauty products.
There are serene views of the sounding landscape of a waterfall and undisturbed valley. Kerr has an abundance of built area to reach her state of enlightenment. The large windows on the numerous levels and open plan allow the external environment to be en-captured within the building.
There is a level for research of her organic skin care products.
There is also a runway situated at the top of the structure. This allows for practice and performances for her modeling.
Kerr believes in being organic and healthy. This valley office and her life style go hand in hand, creating a little piece of nirvana that she can escape her busy schedule with.
The lift for Kerr is circular. On half of the circle, there is a solid balustrade, other half has non. This is so, if Kerr chooses, she can meditate on the lift, which stops right on the waters surface below the bridge. The lack of balustrade make the view and environment more available so she feels less constricted.
Keller’s office space consists of three different spaces. One is an open room in which she writes her books and speeches. Because she is blind, the space has especially large opening windows. This allows Keller to feel the environment and experience the nature around her.
The second room is a library where she researches for her speeches and finds inspiration. Her own published books are placed in there also.
The third, top room is accessed by a simple lift. This space is a classroom where she has learnt to communicate. This room is also for other people with like disabilities to learn to communicate, read and write.
