Building upon the HAPPI design principles, DWELL researchers have been involved in the developing a series of co-designed typologies that respond to third-agers’ aspirations and represent a new approach to age-friendly general-needs housing. Original pdf versions of the typology drawings are available below, or download the Designing with Downsizers report for full details.
- Courtyard bungalow (pdf, 1.1MB)
- Chequerboard house & bungalow (pdf, 1.4MB)
- Hillside bungalow (pdf, 0.8MB)
- Deck access (pdf, 0.7MB)
- Slender block (pdf, 1.0MB)
- Tower block (pdf, 1.1MB)
The DWELL research team commissioned housing experts at Faithful and Gould to provide supporting high level elemental cost analysis for these typologies. Their report can be downloaded here: DWELL High Level Elemental Cost Analyses Report_web version (pdf, 4.5MB).
