« La virgule » // « The comma »

Team work – Global Design

To help breaking the cycle of homelessness, we provided housing assistance and educational services for homeless and at-risk families living in Lyon. The goal was to organize a modular space to offer families a place to take care of their children and a place to have some rest. « La Virgule » (the comma) allows to link two parts of a sentence. We consider the houseboat as a comma : a place to relax, to have a break, a link between the life outside and the life on board.The identity and the pictograms are based on these thoughts. We also wanted to create a universal language for foreign families that don’t speak french.
