Michael and Cynthia came to us with a vision for their future in retirement. Their ultimate goal was to incorporate universal design aspects with easily accessible features in addition to creating two separate living areas in their single family 2 story home. The 2nd story would eventually be the dedicated living area for their children and grandchildren, while the newly renovated and expanded ground floor would be the perfect independent retirement living area for themselves.

Working with 2M Architecture, and using elements of universal design, we created a home where all ages could be comfortable and remain close to family. The project captured space from the tandem garage to add a bedroom, bathroom, kitchen area and living space on the ground floor.  A comfortable home atmosphere was created by enlarging rear windows for natural light and using translucent materials in doors to help disperse the outdoor light throughout. A very narrow staircase was widened to make it safer while we eliminated all stairs to their home’s ground floor entry.
