Nestled in a serene neighbourhood, this low-density, freehold condominium offers a harmonious blend of functionality and aesthetics, making it an ideal haven for individuals seeking a universally designed living space.

Universal Design is an approach to designing and constructing spaces, environments or/and products that make them accessible and usable by people of all ages, abilities, and mobility levels. It aims to create inclusive and accommodating spaces that promote independence, safety, and comfort for everyone, regardless of their physical, sensory, or cognitive abilities.

The goal of universal design is also being able to anticipate a homeowner’s changing needs, often with the intent of lasting several generations.

What are the Universal Design features of Tuai Timur?

  • Minimum floor drop with ramps at designated areas

An area of the home that is often neglected when considering ease of use or practicality is the floor transition. Even when included, it is often only applied to the outside of the house. Tuai Timur homes are designed with minimum floor drop with ramps at the unit’s entrance, yard, and toilets to facilitate easier transitions between spaces. Thresholds are designed with low or no curbs or sloped edges, and at least one entryway into the home has no steps.

  • 900 mm-wide designated doorway opening.

An important aspect of universal design is the inclusion of wide doorways to accommodate individuals who use wheelchairs. This is a prominent feature in Tuai Timur’s homes as wide doorways play a crucial role in ensuring mobility and facilitating manoeuvrability and independence for wheelchair users, allowing them to navigate with ease and dignity.

While standard doorways typically measure around 760 to 800 mm, wide doorways are at least 900 mm wide. This additional width provides sufficient clearance and minimises the risk of accidental collisions with door frames or adjacent walls for most wheelchair types and sizes.

•  Obstruction-free space that allows for a minimum 5-foot turning radius for a 360-degree turnaround.

In the realm of Universal Design, it is essential to provide obstruction-free spaces that allow for a minimum 5-foot turning radius for a 360-degree turnaround. The homes in Tuai Timur are designed to not only benefit individuals with mobility limitations but also enhance usability for everyone, including those pushing strollers, using walkers, or carrying bulky items.

•  Lever-type door lockset instead of the traditional cylindrical lock.

Instead of the traditional doorknobs, Tuai Timur utilises lever-type locksets. Unlike the traditional door lock mechanisms, which often require fine motor skills and dexterity to operate, lever-type locksets are designed to be easily operated with a simple push.

This makes them more accessible for individuals with limited hand strength, arthritis, or other conditions that affect hand mobility. Lever handles can be gripped and operated using various parts of the hand, including the palm, side, or forearm, allowing for greater flexibility, and reducing the effort required to open or close a door.

•  Electrical switches at 900 to 1200 mm from the floor.

To further ensure accessibility and usability for residents of all abilities in Tuai Timur, all electrical switches are placed at a height range of 900 to 1200 mm from the floor.

This design feature benefits individuals with varying degrees of mobility, including wheelchair users, individuals of shorter stature, or those with a limited reach like children.

•  Other safety features throughout the development

Incorporating robust safety measures is essential to protect the well-being and security of individuals who occupy and utilise these spaces. In the case of Tuai Timur, attention is given to ensuring that the safety features are designed with inclusivity and accessibility in mind.

This ensures that individuals with disabilities or specific needs can navigate and utilise a development comfortably and safely. Features such as a fire sprinkler system in all units (not usually provided in residential developments) and key common areas, protected fire refuge areas on every floor, stretcher-accessible fire escapes and lifts, a 24-hour security system, multi-tier access cards control, raised swimming pool, fenced playground promote equal access for everyone, irrespective of their abilities.
