ARA Architects is a well established practice whose primary focus is that of the design and adaptation of buildings for clients with disabilities. ARA has worked closely over the years with various clients, most notably the Royal National Institute for the Blind, and has produced designs for nursing homes and educational buildings as well as residential building. All have centred around the needs of the disabled including the
visually impaired elderly, those with profound multiple learning difficulties and those with physical disabilities.
In recent years however ARA has redirected its efforts to supporting and helping individual clients and their families in the home environment, developing specific solutions to meet individual needs.
