Source: London Free Press
Bridlewood Homes has been building custom homes in the London and surrounding area for the past 12 years. Committed to the wants and needs of all our clients has been our number one priority. When approached almost a decade ago by a client with accessible/barrier free applications in their home, Bridlewood Homes' recognized that the needs of a person(s) with Universal Plan design elements was in many ways a niche market that had been ignored.
Bridlewood Homes realizes that this type of design - Universal Plan Design - recognizes and accommodates the broadest possible spectrum of human ability, in all of its products and environments. It is an ideal, a goal of accommodating people of much different strength, sizes and abilities as possible. In a nutshell, it is based on common sense where design works for all walks of life.
The Universal Plan design accommodates many lifestyles, without being institutional in its atmosphere. From making wider hallways and doorways, create shower/bathing areas that require no form, al barriers, implement garage floors that are flush (level) with access to the house, to providing work areas (kitchens/offices) that are attainable for every person. Implementing this type of design into the home, without being obvious, is what true Universal Plan design embraces. It is a "smart way to build" providing comfort and convenience across the board.
Sitting down with a client, and assessing their needs, is where is all begins. Bridlewood Homes will bring forth possible solutions to make your “Dream Home” a reality.
