Special Needs Group-Housing within different housing models

Maximizing living and working conditions for the less fortunate makes for a more compassionate society” — Bert Bulthuis, Founder & Principal architect, Studio Sitec.

Studio Sitec has extensive experience in designing housing for people with special needs. This experience includes self-assured exteriors and interiors with smart tools to improve quality of life.

Every human being is special and building houses for people with special needs is an architectural niche, because of the specifications required to realise housing that has a proud identity in the midst of society.

The building vision for people with special needs calls for a design attitude towards a specifically-designed environment where all can live to their maximal capacities in a safe and inspiring environment.

The architect plays a crucial role in bringing special needs-group initiatives together with building partners, paving the way to realisation of these important initiatives.
