What is Universal Design?
Universal Design is the design of homes that supports multi-
generational living arrangements that offer full and equal access,
flexibility, adaptability, safety, mobility, and full enjoyment for
all over a lifetime. It takes lifestyle into consideration and allows
individuals to live in a home that supports their changing needs.
Universal Design incorporates slightly more square footage than
standard housing, thus providing usability and mobility for all,
regardless of age, ability, or disability. It allows the integration
of features to accommodate for special needs without major
modifications or renovation.
Universal design should be the norm in all homes.
