Here is my finished project! There is more info at NKBA Student Competition, but here is a summary of the prompt:
The 2012/13 Competition challenges students to design a Kitchen and Bath from an architects plan using the NKBA Planning Guidelines with Access Standards. This year’s challenge is to renovate the basement of the Midwest suburban raised ranch home. The basement will be converted to a downstairs apartment for the client’s 74 year old mother, who suffers from arthritis in her knees and uses a walker. Students are challenged to design a room for the mom, Edita, a native Lithuanian that immigrated to the United States in 1950. She desires a room reminiscent of this mid-century modern period.
I wanted to keep with the Mid Century Modern style, but put a modern spin on it. My main goal was to create an open space where she could live comfortably and keep with the Universal Design codes. Enjoy.
