The Sensory Sensitivity of Blind People in Creating the Convenience Concept in their House Interior

Mahdi Nurcahyo


This study aims to examine how a blind person recognizes and presents the aspects of convenience inside the house. The limited ability to see does not make the blind people weak, but it becomes an advantage and an easy walk when carrying out daily activities at home. The experience of the body and senses of the occupied space opens the blind people's awareness to be able to create a "feeling of home" as part of ways of giving the meaning of life for their days. Through a sense of experience, blind people have the ability to organize spaces including scale, shape, material, and distance according to their body's convenience. The sensory sensitivity of blind people in creating a sense of convenience is one of the parts of the process of forming the orderliness of the space they inhabit.
