(Semi-circle/U shape seating in classroom; Wider hallway for parallel signing; Ramps instead of steps; Transparent or opaque office walls/doors to see light/shadows; Furniture muted blue, green for skin tone contrast; Mirrors to see reflection of someone approaching from behind; transparent elevators; diffused lighting)
