Universal Bathroom Design: Human Life Cycle Objective January 22, 2009

Filed under: Bathroom Design — ia2studio @ 7:33 pm

Unlike existing bathrooms, which are designed primarily for independent users, these bathrooms consider the needs of the human life cycle and address dependent use and care-providing alongside independent use in the bathroom. These bathrooms reflect the social and inclusive philosophy of universal design and they have the potential to unify diverse population groups so no one user is excluded by their design.
