New building for Blind Scottish Veterans

#1
"Blind veterans in Scotland have a new place they can hang out and not hurt themselves.

Designed for the Scottish War Blinded, the New Linburn Centre has a curved spine layout with a wide, sweeping hallway that is easy to picture in the mind. Guests can grab the railing and use this mental map to make their way from one end of the building to the other. The building is all one level and has low-profile door thresholds, both of which lessen the chance a visitor will trip and fall. Even the paint is specially selected - it's a high-contrast mixture that helps those with limited vision see doorways and rooms.

Besides its accessibility features, the facility is designed for fun. It has a workshop, an art room, and even a gym. Outside, the landscape is filled with a sensory garden and a terraced lawn. It's everything a blind person could want and more."



Well even if those using the place can't see it- it definitely looks like a nice place to go to.

A Beautiful Building For the Scottish War Blind

There's a blind school somewhere here in Paderborn, where they teach you to navigate using a stick and how to read braille. I've seen the signs for the place, I could never work out why they signposted it though........

I pass the centre every day to and from work. Is the new building behind the horseshoe houses? ,because I can't see it from the A71.

Based on what I saw waddling around on the pad's patch, 70% of my Battalion were blind. The APWT scores seemed to support that, too.

Have they got room for one more nutter from Rhyl, with his sweeping of his stick (with a ball on the end) I've seen him fell small children, large children, pensioners, dog's, prams & dented umpteen cars.
He's hysterical to watch, how he's managed not to have his head smashed in yet is one of lifes great mysteries.
