Inclusive Design

Inclusive Design, also know as Multigenerational Living, enables people of all ages, with or without disabilities to be able to share and enjoy using the same spaces.

For too long it’s been the case that homes are designed for either the young or the old, for those with growing families and income or those down sizing or retiring, and they don’t have to be. Inclusive Design means seamless, unobtrusive design that makes a home suitable for all ages and all mobility.

At Invisible Network we understand the difference that being able to operate basic systems around the home can make to the freedom someone has to continue to live in their own home when mobility problems arise. WiFi is central to those systems. A good WiFi can enable a person to see who’s at the door, open or close curtains and windows and, of course, keep you connected with loved ones and the world at large.

We’re happy to work closely with a group of partner businesses, each of who is committed to the concept and practice of Inclusive Design, they are:
