Innovative Disability House being built in Oran Park

Housing News

Say goodbye to traditional disability group homes and hello to a modern and accessible new standard of disability housing.

Specialist Disability Sousing Provider DPN Casa Capace has partnered with Northcott as the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) Supported Independent Living (SIL) care provider and design collaborator for a first of its kind disability housing hub in the South-west Sydney suburb of Oran Park.

“It was a real pleasure to attend with our customers. The past 12 months has been about the theory. Yesterday saw the reality of how we can offer customers a unique way to choose how they live in the community, in a property that is a reflection of what they want it to be,” Simon said.

The design is stunning, and will set a real benchmark in providing suitable, elegant and appropriate accommodation in a fully supported setting. We are champions of the move away from the institutional image of a traditional disability group home, and this opportunity to partner with developers like DPN shows what the standard for disability housing should be.

Its semi-detached housing prototype is designed for two to three NDIS participants with a disability to live on each side of the property, including those with complex needs, who can have each room tailored to their needs.

The house will include customisable fittings, such as supports in ceilings to accommodate hoists and adjustable kitchen benches, sinks and basins for wheelchair usage. The homes will feature the latest in technology, using Apple’s Homekit platform for privacy and control with the option for remote-controlled lighting, blinds, doors, heating and cooling for each room, as required, to assist residents.

Sam Khalil, DPN Founder and Managing Director, says the private sector is equipped to develop the housing needed to meet Australia’s growing demand for SDA homes.

“DPN is sourcing capital from institutional investors – and our supply chain has the capacity to build hundreds of homes each year,” he said.

“We are taking on the responsibility and cost of the homes, allowing the care providers to focus on placing tenants and providing the required support and care.”
