CFHA Shilo Barrier Free Access House funk architect

CFHA Barrier Free Housing

Harold Funk Architect has designed a template barrier-free access house for the Canadian Forces Housing Authority. Houses have thus far been built in Shilo MB and Edmonton AB.

The houses feature a best-practices approach to wheelchair access, with large turning radii in all rooms, specially designed washrooms and shower, and generous hallway space with bevelled corners. The kitchen has lowered counters, countertop knee space for wheelchair users, and a cooktop, oven and microwave that are in easy reach from a seated height.
