Following on from our projects for communal and teaching buildings for those with disabilities and autism, we are working on designs for pocket site specialist housing developments providing homes and shared accommodation for individuals with autism. The illustrated scheme is for 1 bed flats and a small more enclosed grouping to suit differing levels of support required. With arcaded entrances at ground and first floor the units are visually linked together to identify a small community embedded in a residential area. A common room and enclosed garden provide opportunities for exercise, gardening activities and individual life skills training with a carer. The garden will also have a sensory area and a wander loop for de-stressing.
