Having moved several times, the homeowners wanted to create a home where they could successfully and safely age in place. It was to be their “forever home.” They also love to entertain, and wanted space for family and friends to gather. They opted for a whole house remodel.
They purchased a mid-century rambler house in Fairfax City and we began tearing out walls to create an airy Open Concept space. With the stunning 2-story clerestory addition, the home seemed to double in size and was filled with natural light at any time of day. An expanded gourmet kitchen offers circular flow.
To address their Aging in Place needs, Universal Design features include:
- Lever handles
- No-threshold entryways, limited steps & widened doorways
- No-glass/no-barrier master bathroom with non-slip flooring & accessibility niches
