UNIVERSAL DESIGN SUMMIT II March 29 - 30, 2006 KITCHENS AND BATHROOMS A Case Study - 6 North Apartments Universal design is the design of products and environments to be usable by all people, to the greatest extent possible, without the need for adaptation or specialized design. –Ron Mace The intent of universal design is to simplify life for everyone by making products, communications, and the built environment more usable by as many people as possible at little or no extra cost. Universal design benefits people of all ages and abilities. Greg Zipfel, AIA, CDT Trivers Associates
