> PROJECT DOCUMENTATION
The house was originally designed for an older couple that just retired. Keeping in mind their needs in the years to come I tried to anticipate possibility of lack of mobility when they become even older and adjust the living in a new house to their requirements, abilities and capabilities. We anticipated wheelchair use and increased ease of maintenance, reduced the amount of walls and living spaces, positioned the beds with bigger windows and better views from the bed in the bedroom. We implemented a whole range of measures that would potentially make the living in the house as easy as possible.
As life tends to get ahead of us, the house is now in the middle of construction and being re-purposed for a single parent family with two older kids.
The main bedroom with big windows became a piano studio for the older daughter. The big guest room was partitioned in to two rooms for the mother and the son.
This goes to show the flexibility of the plan and ensures the best living conditions possible for any type of family/ type of resident living in the house.
