PSBN Wyata Guna is a foundation that aims to provide services for visually impaired people. The studied area functions to facilitate dining activities or its residents could take away their meal from the area. Dining rooms have high potential complexity and level of activity. While user movement is one consideration in the area, lack of treatment in the room causes frequent collisions and difficulties for the residents in finding directions. Stimulus is needed to support them to circulate through space, and the ones that play a high role are sound and layout. This study uses an experimental method to learn how the layout and sound stimuli influence them in circulation. Sustainable Material usage is underlined in response to the recent environmental issues. Distance, on the other hand, is not a determinant of the movement duration in the circulation. The most important for the visually impaired are instructions in the circulation and sound stimuli located at relevant points. The instructions could be furniture or other objects and should not inhibit circulation and be consistently distanced, while the sound is to convince them whether their direction is correct. This paper could be an allusion to further studies and an input for interior designers and architects.
