There's a large and growing market today for universal design in housing, but little information available to architects, builders, and developers on how best to achieve it. In this first practical implementation guide for professionals, you'll learn how to incorporate all the elements of universal design and barrier-free access easily, attractively, and at little or no additional cost. Whether you're designing a single-family home or a large-scale retirement community, you'll be shown imaginative ways to seamlessly integrate into your plans such features as ramps, motorized stair lifts and elevators, hands-free controls, wheelchair access bathrooms and kitchens, roll-in showers, visual- and hearing-impairment aids, remote-control devices, and lots more.
