WHAT WE DO

Consulting For Inclusive Environments : For Private And Commercial Developments

Stadler& works with institutions, organizations and housing developers to create comfortable environments that make their users feel strong and engaged.  Our designs are informed by all stake holders, from users to staff. We conduct workshops that while tapping into existing resources expand the notion of age-friendly and inclusive design.

 

Long Term Homes : For Private Residences

We support our clients with spatial and social design solutions at life transitions when “home” has to adapt to support comfort and competence; this could be the birth of a child, teenagers with a need for emotional and physical space, an empty nest, a work life at home, older parents moving in, or growing old at home.

 

WHO WE ARE

Stadler & follows the European model of building networks and project specific teams. When required by either project brief or complexity, such teams draw form our strategic alliances with social service experts, industrial designers and legal and development specialists.
