Universal Bathrooms


Client: National Institute of Disability & Rehabilitation Research

A unique example of a good federally funded research program with innovative thought processes applied to retro-fit problems. The Universal Bathroom concept uses two entries, movable fixtures and movable panels to retrofit existing bathrooms for universal design. Because many people are aging, become disabled, etc., and do not want to move from their house, retrofitting the bathroom is an economically viable and a physically easier alternative than moving to another location.
