Once again, HB villages appointed ACA for supported living accommodation design in Southam.
Previously, ACA designed supported living accommodation for the Client in Dunstable.
The brief was to demolish an existing police station and build 20 new supported living apartments. In fact, 3 apartments will accommodate residents with physical disabilities and the rest will accommodate residents with learning disabilities.
ACA focused on accessibility design principles for all disabilities.
For instance, the layout of internal corridors are wide, simple and safe to negotiate. Also, doors are wide enough with low thresholds. Additionally, the selection of floors are firm, non-directional and slip-resistant to allow easy passage for wheelchair users. Kitchen designs are fully accessible by wheelchair users, allowing them to interact in cooking activities.
