‘PIE' - A Design Guide for Depaul
Since our inception, Earle Architects have completed a number of projects looking to address fundamental psychological and physical design considerations relevant to homelessness with organisations and registered charities such as St Mungo’s, Thamesreach and Depaul UK. This publication coincides with our ongoing involvement in schemes with Depaul around the UK.
The publication is an illustrative guide for hostel managers and designers to offer possible suggestions to explain how the physical environment can help manage mood and behaviour of vulnerable people in their built environment surroundings. It is a non-prescriptive guide with input from a number of sources including the following organisations:
Depaul, Earle Architects, Peoples Lottery, Derwent Property, Gubay Foundation, St Mungo’s, Thames Reach, Maggies
