Allevi-ate is an inclusive restaurant and hub designed for children with ASD and their families. Driven by the social stigma surrounding people with ASD and their families, 'alleviate' focuses on removing 'The Social Model of Disability' from an interior space. The design provides and environment that accommodates those with ASD in a way which is not de-humanising but through a calm, minimalistic environment design to support them.
Majoring in Interior Design and minoring in Interactive and Visual Design, Maddison O’Connor designs with the intent to offer a new perspective. She is passionate about creating innovative spaces that positively impact and changes peoples lives through the exploration of materiality and form.
