Custom-designed multilevel apartment
Open, light custom-designed multilevel apartment for wheelchair user
The user bought an empty attic and planned the apartment from scratch. The lower floor has the living room, kitchen, balcony, bedroom and bathroom. The upper floor has a work room and storage.
The user did not want the apartment to look like it was designed for someone with disabilities and he is satisfied with the results. He waited for a long time until he found his “dream apartment” and invested his insurance money in it. He spends a lot of time in the apartment, especially during the winter, and therefore he wanted to live comfortably.
