The Inner Dancer
Designed by Inbud
The Inner Dancer explores the narrative, ethos and nature of the work undertaken at Bugle House. This unique provision caters for young people with SEND (Special Educational Needs and Disabilities). Each young person is different and has their own experiences and challenges. Additional needs coupled with adverse childhood experiences places them under unimaginable strain. Yet they all share one thing; each has a gift they can bring to the world.
Shrouded in a carpet of native flora, the Inner Dancer finds itself enveloped within a dynamic and tangible wilderness, both playful and educational in its inception. Greeted by a cylindrical slatted structure, a central path gives way to multiple entrances. Windows within, allure the onlooker to what ensues. Inside a labyrinth unfolds, a series of interlinking paths, communal areas and secluded pockets set out in a radial format entice those within to indulge further; a place to learn, a place to play to unwind, a place of sanctuary, a place to seek their Inner Dancer.
