Heidelberg Heights SDA

This new Specialist Disability Accommodation (SDA) project in Heidelberg Heights will relocate five residents less than 100m from their current dwelling so they can remain in the community they love, are familiar with and where they have long established and sustaining connections.

The development is for three units, two 2-bedroom dwellings and one 1-bedroom. Access to the home’s front doors is along the western boundary under a fire and weatherproof canopy. Three of the residents are deafblind so the material and colour palette have been chosen very carefully. High contrast colours (black on white) and textures (smooth and rough) are used to assist these residents to way find through the development.

Landscaping elements and plant choices have also been selected to assist residents in orientating themselves. Perfumed plants have been used at entrances and contrasting foliage is used in the courtyard spaces to identify different areas through touch.

Construction completed in 2023.  

We acknowledge the Traditional Owners of Country throughout Australia and their continuing connection to ancestors, country and community. 
We pay our respects to their Elders both past and present and to their enduring cultures.
