2014 Residential Universal Design

See all the project photos

This Universal Design project started as a remodel to improve bathroom safety for an 87 year old woman experiencing frequent falls. In addition to safety, the goals included creating a low-maintenance, cheerful, open, airy space and improved lighting without relocating fixtures or enlarging the bathroom. We designed a curbless shower covered with slip-resistant wet room sheet flooring that also covers the entire bathroom floor. The new bath includes a higher toilet with grab bars on both sides and a sitting sink with retractable doors covering the floorwell. The client and several generations of her family now enjoy the new bathroom and shower.
