Located at 454 Glenferrie Rd, Vision Australia’s lush, interior uses sensory design to assist people with low vision to feel more empowered within the workplace. With a workforce made up of 240 visually impaired employees, colour was deliberately used throughout the building to provide visual differentiation and practical navigation solutions. Planex was selected to supply a customised locker system in a range of coloured powder coats featuring Braille numbering for visually impaired employees. Linea Sliding Door cabinets were also specially designed to match punch pattern acoustic paneling featured throughout the building.
