Ground-Up Single Family House in Scottsdale, AZ

This project was designed for a woman in a wheelchair and her husband. It was a pleasure and a great learning experience to design a home to work for the needs of someone in a wheelchair, from wider hallways to special bathroom considerations. 

This project was intended to be a large remodel and addition to an existing mid century modest masonry home in south Scottsdale. But with the accessibility needs of the client, the house expanded in size and it didn’t make sense to retain the original walls. The biggest challenge to retaining the existing walls is that the client wanted a very deep garage where they could store their accessible van as well as some vintage cars that were a hobby for the husband. Utilizing the existing driveway in conjunction with the expanded garage became the cornerstone on which the rest of the project was designed.
