...that in addition to many fantastically varied residential projects, White Space Architecture has had the opportunity of working on various commercial projects over the years? You may recall Tangletown Dental, one of the more notable projects, but there have been others. From clinics to a cycling studio, coffee shop, and offices, each project has brought a unique and adaptive set of skills from which to draw.
Universal design...this seems to be a hot topic these days: aging in place...how to extend living in one's home. That is where the benefit of commercial experience really benefits the residential client. All commercial work must include accessible design components. Translating this into the home environment is a simple extension of these principles, which include: 1) equitable use--is the design useful to a diverse population, 2) flexibility in use--does the design accommodate many possibilities, 3) simple and intuitive use--is it easy to understand, 4) perceptible information--does the design communicate well, 5) tolerance for error--does it minimize potential accidents, 6) low physical effort--is it easy to use, and 7) size and space for approach and use--is it usable by all. With our changing demographics, the issue will become increasingly important. For more information, you can visit this website...or simply give me a call!
