Escape areas alow to be separately in common places and reduce sensory overload. They providing an opportunity to stand back, process information, and restart. For autistic individuals, feeling calm and relaxed allow them being able to successfully engage with the world around them. When a child with ADHD has difficulty concentrating, he is unable to "turn off" the abundance of other stimulation in front of him. Creating a suitable environment for his needs, can help him integrate and control the sensory overload he is experiencing. The illustration show a speacial "focus corner" that allows you to concentrate on the reading action. Such a corner creates for children with ADHD a minimalist environment that won't cause distractions and overrun information.
We use rounded edges as a guideline for space design, especially in the escape area where we gather and concentrate on our personal feeling. Such 'round edges' can be expressed through round furniture, soft material, light shape, and bright color. The effect of this softness derives from our childhood. By using smooth and round elements one feels more comfortable, assure and secure in space.
