2017 National Award
Residential Universal Design


The clients purchased their 1980s era ranch style home with a view to the evolving health needs of one of the partners. As it became apparent that the time was approaching when the client would need the assistance of a wheelchair for mobility, they decided to remodel the master bath prioritizing accessibility, function, and aesthetics.

Design Solutions:

- Existing unused tub was removed.
- New zero threshold walk
- In shower with open shower enclosure was placed in former tub location.
- Two handheld shower heads: one placed at standing height, the other at a seated height near the built-in 18-high shower bench.
- Controls were located at the wall near the entry to the shower.
- A bench for seating while dressing was located outside the shower.
- Water closet was relocated to a private room. No door specified at client request.
- 36-wide pocket door was located at entry from master bedroom and at
entry to master closet for ease of passage.
- A T-shaped turnaround space was designed to ADA standards.
- Vanity area: two 36x34x25.5 vanity areas open below for knee clearance are interrupted by a tall linen closet.
