Accessible housing by design: NH18-24/63I-2016E-PDF

house designs and floor plans.

Accessible house design is design that will accommodate everyone, including people with disabilities. Accessible housing includes houses that are minimally accessible, houses that can easily be made accessible at a later date, and houses that are completely accessible with power door openers, large bathrooms and so on. This fact sheet contains a series of accessible housing case studies. Each case study provides details on the type of house, the profile and needs of its residents and the design features that make the house visitable, adaptable, accessible or universal.
