The owners wanted to remain at home through their retirement years, but a second-floor bedroom and basement laundry would make that difficult. We worked with them to design a first-floor, “aging-in-place” master suite addition. They requested that we keep all windows in the living room and upstairs bedrooms and maintain the patio. To meet the requests of the client, the architect chose the hallway adjacent to the stairs as the access to the addition. A courtyard between the house and the addition allowed us to maintain all of the windows. In the end, we accomplished a large master suite addition with oversized doorways and grab bars that all met ADA standards.
