Designing Ahead of the Curve

Designing Ahead of the Curve | Universal Design

You may not be familiar with the term Universal Design, but I believe it will become the way all homes will be built in the future. Just as Green Design was a niche concept in the 1990s and is now the standard for all savvy, responsible design, I believe Universal Design will become part of our broader understanding of how our homes can enhance the quality of our lives over time. In short, Universal Design just makes sense.

What is Universal Design?

What is Universal Design

Simply put, Universal Design is an architectural approach to designing a home so that it's user friendly to all occupants, whatever their age, ability or size. It makes the home multi-generational and flexible, so that a 4-year old can use the kitchen counters as easily as a 94-year old, a five-foot woman can access the same shelves as her 6'-2"husband,  and someone with even a temporary disability can make their home work for them. It's specifically about adapting the basic home to our evolving needs as our bodies change. The breakthrough is that, by designing with these accommodations in mind, the result is a home designed with more thoughtfulness and mindfulness-- better for everyone.
