Adopting the principles contained in the Liveable Housing Guidelines, "lifehome" aims to promote a realistic approach to the planning and construction of homes for the future. The concept is to build houses that utilise some basic principals of liveability to meet the needs of people at all stages of life, especially to those living with injury and the ageing.
Liveable Housing Australia (LHA) is a partnership between community and consumer groups, government and industry. LHA champions the mainstream adoption of liveable housing design principles in all new homes built in Australia. LHA arose from the Kirribilli Dialogue on Universal Housing Design, which established nationally agreed guidelines on designing and building liveable homes.
These guidelines are readily available for all to view and adopt and the Liveable Housing Co. are dedicated to seeing these basic principles of liveability adopted as the standard for all residential homes.
