Our ‘Following Up Post Occupancy’ report is now complete. It summarises the many valuable design insights we gained from carrying out a series of resident interviews & surveys.
By connecting with the residents of the homes that we designed, we hoped to learn which aspects of the designs work and which could be improved. The surveys enabled us to map out firsthand connections between the well-being of residents and the functional aspects of the homes that they live in.
There were many interesting takeaways from the report, including how to make the design of apartments further appeal to families. The survey evidence has provided us with a toolkit of design strategies to directly contribute to increased resident well-being.
By building relationships with the residents of our buildings, we have realised an important missing link in housing development, demonstrating the importance of revisiting projects to ensure continuous improvement in our present and future projects.
