Episode 3 (Part II)- Meet Architect Cathi House

Find out the challenges that architect Cathi House faced when designing this incredible home on the Baja Peninsula in Mexico

The challenge presented to Cathi House from House+House Architects, was to create a home that was truly accessible for everyone including the homeowners who required access for friends in wheelchairs as well as adaptability as they age. This home was designed with intimate connections to nature all around, with easy access from every space to gardens at the lower level and terraces above, where everyone can enjoy both the drama of this magnificent setting and the seclusion of a hidden oasis. In addition to its accessible features, this home was designed to be ‘green’ and completely self sustainable.

From curved benches to lower counters and outlets to integrated supports and lifts, the home has accessibility features integrated into nearly every aspect of the design without announcing the home as “accessible”.
