Smoke Alarm

Safety

First

Prototyping / Campaign Design

All over the world, people are living in overcrowded homes. From slump house to subdivided flats, they all pose a unique risk. Fires are widespread in these urban populations. The lack of proper housing, limited government resources, and more people living in cities than ever before, giving these residents the tools they need to live in a safe home may be the first step towards flourishing communities.

The Ivy Room

 

The Ivy Room is the product of a self-initiated independent study. I am fascinated by nature, how nature affects us, and ultimately how it is a part of us. This luxury parlour improves the lives of it’s consumers by allowing them to invite flora into their spaces. The Ivy Room aims to make nature recognized as a vital piece of the equation for motivated, inspired, efficient people in every field in accordance with the tripple bottom line.

Safety First

Residents will receive a package that contains a safety checklist for their own unit, as well as a smoke alarm, a booklet that details fire safety, and ways to plan a fire escape route in a lock box to protect children from gaining access to matches or lighters. This would also include a way to show that the resident has safe checked their home in the form of a window sticker or door hanger. Ideally the kits would be distributed through privately funded community groups, such as the Red Cross. Several tool kits would also be distributed to buildings intended for community use for small fixes around the building, as well as a fire extinguisher and a smoke alarm for hallways or stairwells.

Although the system was originally designed in Traditional Chinese to be distributed to subdivided flats in Hong Kong, fire safety in overcrowded homes is a global issue. Translations of the materials will be done in English, Spanish, Japanese, and Thai.
