Universal Design Hotel Suite

Facts

Completion
2018

Project details

Human Space and BDP Quadrangle collaborated to reimagine a typical accessible suite to demonstrate how beautiful universal design can be. Generous clearances, multi-functional details and audible and visual elements together with luxurious finishes elevate the guest experience.

The accessible elements are so seamlessly integrated that they are easily missed. The closet, which forms part of a continuous wall unit that flows into a counter and desk, features a lowered rack easily reached while seated, as well as a lower drawer that doubles as a stool. Visual and hearing disabilities were also considered in the design and a doorbell and emergency alert system operates through the cove lighting.

A sliding door to the bathroom maximises floor area for necessary turning space for mobility devices. From the black shower tiles to the brass fixtures to the pink floral wall, all details give hotel guests a luxurious experience reminiscent of a spa. Each of the robe hooks are individually lit and fixed at different heights. The roll-in shower features a large wooden bench, toiletries are printed with braille and the grab bars are an elegant mix of textured wood with brass detailing.

This design does not fall into common tropes of looking institutional or sanitised; it is simply a gorgeous and spacious hotel room with thoughtful design details – luxurious accommodation for any guest.
