Humans arrive at our buildings with a range of needs, preconceptions, backgrounds, challenges and preferences.
One aspect of this work is inclusive washroom design: We know that inclusive washrooms can become much more than a place to go to the bathroom. These spaces become areas where non-binary people are welcome and need to feel safe. For example, the toilet stalls often can function as personal care and/or change space. Non-binary signage and/or graphic elements demonstrates that these spaces are welcome to all. Colours and finishes are selected to be welcoming and can include biophilic design elements.
Below are some photos of our recent projects.
