dRMM was chosen by Cathedral Group PLC as one of a troop of star architects to design a doll’s house with features suitable for children with disabilities.dRMM collaborated with artist Richard Woods to create the “House for a Deaf Child” – an object for learning and playing which promotes visual communication for the hearing impaired.
The exterior of the house is made up of adjustable, brightly coloured strips, whilst the inside is left neutral to allow pattern to be created through light and shadow. On further exploration children will be able to reconfigure the space through the movable furniture. The outer coloured strips can also be removed and re-positioned according to the user’s preference.
All of the dolls’ houses will be up for bidding online leading up to the auction event at Bonham’s Auction house on the 11th November 2013. The proceeds from all sales will go towards KIDS – a national charity working with disabled children and their families.
