  • Extending and adapting a home for a child left severely disabled following an injury at birth.

Extending and adapting a home for a child left severely disabled following an injury at birth.

YK suffers from quadriplegic cerebral palsy, profound and multiple disabilities (PMLD) and hypoxic ischemic encephalopathy (HIE) following a negligent delivery at birth.

Wheelchair dependent and reliant on family members and carers for all personal care, this project involves extending and adapting an existing property to create a fully accessible home for YK and his family.

The photo realistic images and the video walk through created are as if we are stood outside the property. It has made it so much easier to understand and see what is going to happen to our home”.  

Really grateful that we’ve been listened to so carefully, with all our concerns answered and all our wishes met.” 

 “Emma has listened so intently and has been very patient to show us each area of our home. The design is fantastic, and each room and area of the home has been thought about in great detail
