This family of five was inspired to improve their modest 1950’s home without changing its size or footprint. Their goal was to create a home where their son could grow up in a wheelchair and still participate in every activity of family life: sleepovers upstairs with his sisters, working in the Kitchen, and playing in the Basement Rec Room.
The solution was to develop an open plan on three levels with wide doorways and accessible baths all connected by an elevator. A mixture of sleek modern and natural materials throughout resonate with the design origins of the house and bring it into the 21st century. Multiple accessible entry points at the front and rear of the house allow full access to the site.
