Desert Rose Team


Desert Rose House: We have taken up this significant challenge by choosing to design a house that will address these stresses, providing an affordable and sustainable house that encompasses the needs of older people as they continue to age. Our house, named Desert Rose after an iconic flower that flourishes in challenging environments, celebrates the life of its occupants regardless of their physical capabilities, from the very active and capable through to those experiencing aged-related disabilities such as early stage dementia. We will inspire building industries across the globe by demonstrating that it is possible to construct houses that are stylish, affordable, comfortable, and sustainable whilst encompassing the changing needs of an ageing population. 

Desert Rose Goals

  • Change the way the world views homes for the elderly by designing a house that is architecturally inspiring, celebrates life and demonstrates a house that is adaptable to an aging person’s needs.
  • Reduce the stress placed on health services by including intelligent design that supports independent living for occupants suffering from aged-related disabilities and diseases including dementia.
  • Provide an innovative HVAC (Heating, ventilation and air conditioning) system that utilises solar cooling technology and takes advantage of passive design where energy efficiency is just the beginning.
