Collaborative Home Modification Project

The Home Modification is a cross-disciplinary collaborative project between undergraduate Interior Design students and graduate Occupational Therapy students. Residents, of homes and facilities, with disabilities and alternate physical needs are the front-line clients of innovative, accessible design.

It is a design approach that imbues sensitivity and superb problem solving skills to burgeoning interior designers who are guided by their occupational therapy counterpart's contributions to the nature and trajectory of the "real" client's disease. They are encouraged to push the limits of conventional design solutions; where seemingly impossible hurdles are transformed into conceptual challenges and ultimately esthetically superior, functionally adaptive interior design.
