Vision possesses 80% of ones ability to interact and understand the surrounding world. It can be understood that: when a child suffers form a disability such as a visual impairment, the manner in which they learn and develop is compromised and/or delayed. sensing the unseen explores body-space relationships in questioning how interior space may positively effect the development of visually impaired children. A highly sensory and interactive interior provides multiple opportunities for children to develop and acquire the skills for day to day living with a visual impairment.

Polly Schofield has been awarded the "Stylecraft Prize for Outstanding Final Project" in Interior Architecture at the 2013 MADA Now exhibition.
