Livable Housing Designs

What is livable housing design

Livable housing design is about changing the way we design homes to make them easier to use and more adaptable to the changing needs of occupants. In other words, they are being created to ensure that housing is designed to meet the needs of the community, including older people and those with mobility-related disabilities.

  • Dwelling access – getting to the entrance from the allotment boundary
