A National Demonstration Home: Accessible :: Sustainable :: Healthy
This national demonstration home project will serve to help people better understand how to create a more comfortable living environment that will enhance their quality of life, both indoors and out, and regardless of their age or ability.
Its purpose is achieved through unobtrusive universal design, resource and energy efficient green building methods, safety and advanced home automation, healthy home construction practices, the design principles of feng shui, and accessible gardens.
Universal design is a framework for the design of living and working spaces and products benefiting the widest possible range of people in the widest range of situations without special or separate design. Universal design is human-centered design, accommodating people of all sizes, ages, and abilities.
