Aging in Place Technology
Hardwick’s subtle use of universal design helps this home become accommodating without sacrificing luxury style or aesthetic appeal.
Doorways and bathtubs are flush with the ground and hallways are slightly bigger to accommodate a wheelchair, if necessary.
Technology is also used to aid aging in place in this home. Smart lighting that’s controlled with a remote helps older clients control lights without moving around, while a home elevator helps avoid stairs and potential falls.
Luxury-custom builders should consider adopting basic elements of universal design, especially when building for an older client that plans to live in their new house for most of their life.
