Disability is not a limitation for just a few people, it is a part of human life that everyone would experience at some point, temporarily or permanently. The community centre “The Entwine” combines a barrier-free pool with a library for the blind community, a sign language theatre, an inclusive café, and a sensory roof garden. Young talent Kaamil Allah Baksh endeavours to bring together people with and without a ­disability.

The first broad aim of The Entwine is to design a space that is truly inclusive, and that caters to the diverse community as a whole in terms of spatial and experiential accessibility. 

The second one is to provide recreational spaces and amenities that specifically address what the minority community lacks. Swimming and aquatic activities play an important role in the rehabilitation of physically disabled people. This led to the creation of a swimming pool for the disabled in combination with hydrotherapy.
