Whitney Project

Most people want to stay in their cherished homes as they age, and doing so requires a design expert to create an accessible design sanctuary. Our client wanted a safe and comfortable space for loved ones to age with grace.

Designing for Efficiency

Starting in the kitchen, we enter a radiant white space offset by a glittering stainless steel stove conveniently placed near the sink. Then we reach the marble countertop, which is precise and clean but also richly veined to avoid austerity. This kitchen island comes equipped with a generous amount of pull-out pantries for easy dish access. There is also a microwave directly installed beneath the counter to facilitate easy cooking. For the final touches, countertop is rounded by sturdy stools with whimsical lights dangling overhead to provide full illumination.

Creating an Accessible Living Room

The spacious hallway charts a clear pathway to a living room with few obstructions. With carpet and rugs kept to a minimum, the exacting wood grain makes it easy for those in wheelchairs to navigate. To culminate the design, muted teal paneling and a textured wood slab beneath the TV, subtle textures accentuate the clean and minimalistic tones that pervade the space.

The Final Design

From the placement in the shower alcove to undercounter drawers in the kitchen, we designed with a wheelchair’s vantage point in mind. Through a strategic interplay of space planning, lighting, color, and ergonomic furniture, we have crafted a place for people to live in their beloved home as long as possible.
