KPA Architects Partnering with Brightwater Care Group on New Huntington’s Disease Village

KPA Architects are honoured to be selected by the Brightwater Care Group to design housing for people with Huntington’s disease, in the Perth suburb Piara Waters.

The project is the first specialist disability accommodation (SDA) to be purpose-built to support people with Huntington’s disease.

KPA Director, Todd Paterson said the village design will meet the highest standards set by the NDIS of High Physical Support enabling an increased level of choice and control in a contemporary residential living environment specially designed for the occupants.

“This includes adaptive designs to meet the changing needs of people with Huntington’s disease; and assistive technologies to improve the wellness of residents, staff and visitors

“The individual homes will be designed to blend into the neighbouring streetscape as well as offering community living.

“There is mix of flexible indoor and outdoor living areas for residents to live their lives, socialise with each other as well as their family and friends.

“Research shows that design that connect communities with nature through biophilic design can improve the overall wellbeing of people with Huntington’s disease.

“We are in the early planning and community consultation stages and hope to commence building in the middle of 2022”.
