Get Started

The Duplex by Design competition is about designing homes that work for everyone especially those who are older. The competition strongly emphasizes universal design applied to homes, allowing easy customization that can respond to changing needs. The competition aims to go beyond accessible design to generate designs that work well for people of all ages and abilities, including visitors.

Focusing on housing for the older generation makes sense because what works for us when we're older, can often make life just a little easier when we're younger. Designing now for later is just wise.
