ALHAUS created a legacy book to celebrate the Homes for Smart Ageing Universal Design Challenge.
In 2017, Rebuilding Ireland, the Department of Housing, Planning and Local Government, and the Centre for Excellence in Universal Design launched a design challenge with the aim to spark new ideas to address problems within the Irish housing industry. Over 60 respondents presented imaginative concepts with the potential to achieve communities and homes purpose-built for lifetime living.
The success of the project meant it became imperative to capture the story of the challenge, presenting the ideas it provoked to leaders in design and entrepreneurial industries. The task of designing the legacy book was entrusted to ALHAUS, where a team of writers, editors, project managers and designers was able to transform the whole project from an initial concept into a polished finished product.
