Dementia Friendly Dwellings

Neurological Studies have demonstrated curvilinear forms have positive psychological qualities, evoking pleasant emotions and are soothing and relaxing. Recently neuro-scientists have shown this affection for curves isn’t just a matter of personal taste; it’s hard-wired into the brain. Straight lines and sharp angles signal danger, soft curves signal safety. Curved and rounded objects evoke pleasant emotions and feelings of warmth, well-being and harmony.

Using our Arches Building Systems inherent curvilinear shape benefits along with Universal Design Guidelines for Dementia Friendly Dwellings  we will be designing two new accessory dwellings from the ground up for people with dementia, their families and care givers.

Please feel free to Contact Us if you would like to be notified when these new designs and cost budgets are available.
