Specialist Housing

WWA are experts in a wide range of specialist and supported housing, from integrated retirement communities to design for autism and profound and multiple learning difficulties (PMLD).

Our design ethos is centered around the end user and we design inclusively to create innovative solutions to allow people to live independently and with dignity.

Many of our specialist housing developments have won awards and we featured in the RIBA’s book, Age Friendly Housing: Future design for older people which highlighted exemplar design in the sector.  We are experts in dementia friendly design and accessibility.

We have published research in the field and are members of the Housing LIN, Associated Retirement Community Operators (ARCO), Access Association and Housing and Dementia Research Consortium and are constantly evolving our knowledge.

WWA is leading in research into the future of integrated retirement community design.
