2001 Best Residential Universal Design

An upscale New England Golf and Tennis Club had to address the needs of all its members and guests. The primary focus of this project was to construct an accessible structure allowing easy access for handicapped individuals to the club’s sunken ballroom which presents major obstacles for wheelchairs. Because of the appearance and space required for a chair lift, it was not feasible to locate it inside the ballroom itself, so a 12’ X 25’ addition was to be built to accommodate the lift while maintaining the design integrity of this stylish old mansion.

A physical addition was constructed, matching every component and detail of the original structure. Since the remodel there’s no noise interruption in the ballroom from mechanical lifts and no loss of space on the main floor. And most importantly, guests using the lift feel more comfortable since they can get in or out of the ballroom without excessive noise announcing their entry or exit.
