As living cost are forever increasing, we all need to make better use of our resources without compromising our lifestyle. When we design our homes, we often forget how our family structure changes over time and how our homes need to be able to adjust to accommodate various family dynamics, or even for unforeseen events.
Homes should be designed to primarily improve our lives and reduce stress. This is best achieved if they are able to quickly adapt to create living environments that best suit the inhabitants needs regardless of their stage of life. Whether that be by creating accessible living spaces for those with disabilities, providing family independence or improved utilisation of your major asset. All these elements should be considered at the start when looking at the design of a long term family home.
Adaptive design principals are at the core of multi-generational homes and through this website I intend to outline the significant benefit this approach will have on both your household and the community at large.
