  • 2018 American Society of Interior Designers (ASID) 2nd Place Universal/Accessible/Aging in Place Design

Project Summary

This new home near the ocean was built for a retired couple with a strategically considered design plan and thoughtful elements that will make it easier to age in place while surrounded by beautiful contemporary, minimalist design. The couple lived in several cities before settling in San Diego to enjoy its healthy environment. They wanted their home to take advantage of stunning ocean views and embody San Diego’s ideal indoor/outdoor lifestyle.

A ramp on the main entry will accommodate any future accessibility needs. The living area, dining space, and kitchen are integrated in an open and airy design that makes navigation easier. The kitchen integrates extra appliances, an option for aging in place when live-in help may be required. A downstairs bedroom is planned for the possibility of living on one level while an elevator near the stairs provides an alternate method of mobility. The master suite with a kitchenette is ideal when travelling between levels may be inconvenient. The master bathroom’s open curbless shower and curved tub provide easy accessibility. The couple now live with a home tailored to their needs and lifestyle today and anticipated in the future.
