Washbasin cabinet with curtain and shelf with cut-out section make it easier for wheelchair users to come close and maintain balance

Description
A washbasin cabinet stands in front of a spacer unit that is used as counter space. The cabinet has a curtain instead of doors. A section is cut out of the shelf to provide room for the user's legs.

Authors comments
A washbasin cabinet with curtain and shelf with cut-out section allow wheelchair users greater freedom to find an attractive washbasin.
The ability to slide under the washbasin provides easier access. Leaning on the counter makes it easy for the user to balance.
