Universal Design shapes a new era of living, working and play for optimum health, wellbeing and productivity

We are disruptors who challenge the norm and only design great spaces that increase your wellbeing at home, at work, or at play for years to come.

We hope that what we share will blow your socks off!


How does Universal Design affect my health, my home, my business and my community?

Close your eyes and think of your favourite place. Hold onto that feeling. Now imagine that you feel that way when you walk in your front door, when you are in your place of work or when you walk down your street. That is the feeling that is created when you use great Universal Design.

So how are we even more progressive?
We use the Golden Ratio.

The Golden Ratio simply put is ‘nature’s proportion’ and was widely used in ancient architecture. The human body and energy fit spaces designed using the Golden Ratio like a glove. It is proven that spaces designed using the Golden Ratio have positive effects on our health and wellbeing. We are nature after all.

We are collaborators. We design and construct independent living solutions.

‘My Home My Choice’ is a collaboration between Hesta Award winning VisAbility and Studio Halton. Together we bring a team of designers and therapists to deliver beautiful spaces that allow you or your loved ones to live at home. We are National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) registered providers and Specialist Disability Accommodation (SDA) experts. If you are hoping to build or remodel, we have proven that design for disability can be inexpensive and luxurious. We can’t wait to show you our innovative designs.

Are you in Government?

We are experts in Universal Design, National Disability Insurance Scheme registered providers and Specialist Disability Accommodation innovators. We are Liveable Housing Australia accredited. We have proven that great design can result in a healthier community. There is a butterfly effect when spaces are designed to promote health and wellbeing. We can de burden our healthcare system by creating safe and healthy environments to grow up and grow old in. We think outside the box. We work with you to make positive change. We translate your goals into budget smart tangible projects.

A FEW WORDS FROM THE FOUNDER

My greatest wish is that Universal Design becomes the norm. As designers we must care for all abilities. We must ensure that the health and wellbeing of all is at the forefront of our designs. Once we do this, everything else will fall into place just as nature intended it to.
