Design for Life

For homes with space in the right place

Lifemark™ star ratings are awarded to homes that have been well designed and when built are easy and safe to live in – for a lifetime.

Lifemark™ rated homes are designed to be usable, safe and accessible for all ages and stages. The Lifemark™ star certification shows how well a home will suit you and your family’s need over a lifetime. A rating of either 3, 4 or 5 stars is awarded to a dwelling depending on how many of the Lifemark™ Standards are applied to the home.

We work alongside your designer or builder to give an independent rating and offer advice on how to make best use of space based on the principles of Universal Design. Lifemark™ Standards work with any design and any size home. It’s about designing to have space in the right place.
