Jigsaw Supported Living
The study brought together health care specialists to define a brief of outstanding supported living homes, that considered a range of health and social needs. The homes ranged from individual flats, house shares with 2, 3 and 5 adults and a denser 10 place development. Consideration was given to the need of shared facilities, activity spaces, health care support and care requirements, external spaces and inter-connectivity. We were integral to the consultation process, using our specialist autism knowledge to enable the complex brief to be realised in the form of pragmatic dwellings.
The end result was a fully cost tested series of supported living homes that had the flexibility and framework to come together at varying sized communities. It is envisaged these homes, through pairing up with developers, will form a small development within a larger masterplan community. The designs have been realised in a way that they can adapt to different house typologies to ensure maximum flexibility of site opportunities.
