Housing Design Guidelines from South Australia

South Australia Housing Design-Guide-2_3The South Australian Housing Trust has produced a set of Housing Design Guidelines. It replaces the previous publication, Design Criteria for Adaptable Housing.  It gives a useful definition of each of the terms often confused with universal design, and points out that the Adaptable Housing Standard (AS4299) is now outdated and can be replaced by the Livable Housing Design Guidelines as both of these are voluntary. There are detailed drawings to show dimensions of circulation spaces and placement of fixtures and fittings.
