Liverty Housing projects seek to raise the bar in design quality for disability housing.
Projects feature contemporary design technologies and aesthetics that are desirable in the mainstream housing market. While being functional and accessible, Liverty Housing dwellings look and feel much like the dwelling next door.
Accessible and Customisable Design
All dwellings are designed to meet a high level of accessibility with the ability to be customised to the requirements of the occupant. The intention is to enable people to do as much for themselves as possible. The design also supports cost effective adaptation in response to an individual tenant’s changing needs over time, as well as the needs of tenants who may live in the apartments in the future.
Examples of Accessible and Customisable design include:
Installation of ramps, rails, steps, and other modifications that help you access and live in your home more safely.
Adjustable kitchen bench with clear underside, installation of accessible appliances such as side-door opening oven with heat proof tray and single drawer dishwasher.
Clear underside of basin, accessible shower, and movable toilet design.
Ceiling host provision and accessible wardrobes.
What Is Assistive Technology?
- Assistive technologies (AT) are physical supports that help you:
- Do something more easily or safely
- Do something you otherwise cannot do because of your disability
The integration of communication and smart home technology in our homes allow tenants to call for unplanned support when needed (on-site shared support service), granting them more independence, privacy, and control over their living space.
This technology allows for the automation and remote control of various household devices, such as lighting, heating, and security systems. With the use of smart devices, tenants can monitor and adjust their home environment to suit their preferences and needs. This can improve their quality of life and provide a greater sense of security and comfort.
Examples of smart home technology in our dwellings include:
- Automated door entry
- Automated lighting and power control for areas in the home commonly used by the participant.
- Automated climate control for areas in the home specifically used by the participant.
- Automated control of window fittings for areas in the home specifically used by the participant.
- Emergency call system.
- Sensor devices or pressure pads where home automation can be used to control the environment and/or medical-related assistive technology.
- Uninterrupted Power Supply (UPS) for any medical equipment where the welfare of the participant may be at risk and is supported by clinical evidence.
