This supported living development of shared and individual cottages for 10 young adults with autism and high support needs, is designed to provide an exemplar home environment, while enabling the assistance of supported living care. It is a calm and safe yet homely place for the tenants who have complex sensory needs, anchored into its semi-rural setting. Exposed CLT walls, large windows, high ceilings and a restrained pallete all contribute to a quality of light and feeling of space and reduce the visual ‘noise’.
