Easy every day living is a priority at Stockland, which is why our new homes are designed with generous proportions in all the right places.
To do this we design to the Livable Housing Australia (LHA) guidelines, Silver Standard, which ensure homes are easy to get around and to adjust to everyone’s needs.
“This is important as a home is often our biggest lifetime investment, so it’s essential it serves our needs beyond day one and through all stages of life,” says Sophie Pickett-Heaps, Co-Head of Design at Stockland.
LHA design features improve access to the home, navigational space within the home and provide a more comfortable living environment. This means the homes have been designed to meet the needs of growing families, aging residents and people with disabilities, injuries, and life-changing circumstances.

With a minimum spatial standard, you and everyone who visits will feel the generosity of the design as soon as you step foot in the door.
