Making Mobility and Accessibility essential, in enabling our client to continue to live at home.
Key to this brief was to achieve a family home that, in spite of our client's accessibility requirements, would be a stylish example of what a modest fully accessible home might look like.
The resulting design provides the addition of a new wing which houses a spacious bedroom, full wet-room and a single garage with ramped internal access. The new light and airy north-facing living room opens fully onto a generous deck; all with flush thresholds, creating easy flow access to the sunny garden.
The existing bathroom has been re-configured and modernised, also with improved accessibility at its core.
