We are very proud of offering not only one of the few places in this area usable by handicapped ones, but fully accessible and studied from the point of view of a disabled person. By definition, there is no answer suitable for every kind of need, but we started making room enough for wheelchairs, and we are available to provide facilities on demand.
Often fully accessible places are more similar to a hospital than to a house. We decided not to use any of the common solutions and we put in place simple ideas that make the two studios comfortable for everyone.
A slightly inclined floor replaces the shower tray, there is no need for a big water closet when it’s possible to have it at the proper height and the bidet tap can be extended to be a small shower. We put every kitchen tool at a reachable level, likewise all linen; nevertheless, a mezzanine is available.
Outdoor ramps are properly inclined with a maximum of 7% hill and garden common areas are reachable by a wheelchair. Doors are 85-90cm (about 33-35in) wide, but a small step 1cm (about 0.39in) high protects from the rain on the entrance.
