This manuscript aims to discover how people with colour-blindness see and explore open space. Proper understanding of their experience in exploring three-dimensional spaces in the creative industries should now be considered as an essential requirement, especially to create an inclusive city. This research investigated the spatial experience in public space of two respondents: one from the protanomaly and the other from the. From interviewees' experience and field observation, the study shows that the existence of contrast and shadow is crucial to create a spatial experience for the colour-blinds by perceiving depth. The result shows how the colours used in the area are still inadequate to support their deficiency. However, they are still able to navigate themselves around the space with the help of contrast and shadows produced in the space. These findings conclude the need to improve awareness and education within the creative industries towards colour-blindness to design a space that can be fully experienced by colour-blinds.
