Universal Design and ADUs
Announcing New Ballard Project: Universal Design and ADUs
A new approach in senior housing
We’re starting an inspiring new project in Seattle’s Ballard neighborhood – a backyard cottage that will support the family’s aging parent – where he can live both independently and securely just a stone’s throw away.
Led by architect Sheri Newbold of live-work-play, sustainable architecture and interiors firm, the project team is designing an energy-efficient, 600-square foot cottage that will reuse the home’s existing garage structure.
Universal design elements are incorporated in the plans for this one-bedroom, senior dad pad. The design blends contemporary styling and traditional details to complement the 1920s craftsman-style main residence at the front of the property. We kickoff the project this month and will update you on its progress via future postings on MRM’s blog.
Are you interested in converting a garage into liveable space or adding an ADU to your backyard? Contact us anytime, we would be delighted to help!
