When designing accessible retirement community or extra care properties, the access requirements of residents can be achieved without compromising on the look and feel of a home.
When looking to move to retirement properties, people want to see chic, modern designs that can adapt to their needs as time progresses. People of retirement age want homes that are subtly designed to make life easier for them without compromising on the look and feel of a home.
Retirement accommodation needs to convey a sense of warmth and homeliness, whilst providing a safe and supportive environment for residents. Motionspot’s team of accessible designers are skilled at future-proofing retirement and extra care properties so they can adapt to suit the changing needs of residents as they age. Design guidance and specifications can also be provided in all communal areas of a development to ensure the right access is going to be delivered without compromising aesthetics.
We can create:
- Future-proofed accessible bathrooms
- Adaptable kitchens to meet changing needs to ageing population
- Homely, comfortable bedrooms with integrated accessible storage
- Living spaces with suitable space for moveable, accessible supports
- Communal living areas to suit a range of needs
Recent Motionspot projects include:
* Housing & Care 21
* Audley Retirement
* Jewish Care
* Pegasus Life
* Central & Cecil
* Retirement Securities
“It was important for us to select the right partner to design our bathrooms. We have plans to provide a large number of new homes over the next three years and we know that style is just as important to our residents as accessibility and ease of living.
We know that our residents care needs can change over time and we wanted to create environments that could adapt to this - thankfully Motionspot understood this and delivered a fantastic final outcome. We are certain that our future residents are going to be blown away by overall look and feel of their brand new apartments.”
