As part of the Getting Home Project, design-based research was conducted to understand this policy issue from a practical approach. The research conducted highlighted solutions that focus on the spatial needs of families rather than the fixed number of bedrooms required under the NOS and conventional models of housing units. In particular, it was determined that flexible and adaptable space and housing design would lead to suitable housing models. Flexible and adaptable design will have the potential to address the issue of overcrowding as well as the privacy needs of occupants within smaller housing units while also addressing the lack of affordable three-bedroom housing units in BC.
