2013 Watermark Awards
Special Focus, Universal Design
The words universal design get used frequently. But design that’s meant for all—equal parts hard-working and beautiful, answering both current needs and future ones, and that serves those who are physically challenged as well as those who are not—is rare.
The Crest Ridge master bath earned a Special Focus award because it does it all with its sleek finishes, motion-sensitive lighting, curbless shower that drains easily, and showerheads and niche shelves set at both standing and wheelchair height. The jury was in unanimous agreement about the Crest Ridge master bath: Universal design like this is design that needs to be encouraged.
