“We received a call from clients needing a home modification due to a sudden, significant illness that limited mobility,” says CEO and founder Gordon Reese. “With one homeowner now in a wheelchair, the homeowners decided to convert the lower level of their tri-level home to an elegant and functional Master Suite. The team set to work, designing a new environment that would be easy to use by all household members, and one that applied Universal Design principles. We wanted the space to be simple and
intuitive, as well as elegant and stylish.”
