Accessible Design

The goal of this team project was to design a hotel room that met all principles of universal design. Our aim was to design a space that was universally accessible and adaptable to various environments and needs from the very beginning. From the power assisted front door and illuminated signage to the bathroom and bedroom, all elements were designed with accessibility as the priority. We designed all furniture with lowered heights for easy reach, click to open systems, and accessible table depths. We designed the floor plan for easy wheelchair navigation while ensuring there was appropriate clear floor space for turning circles.
